.AppleDouble & .DS_Store on MyBookLive and MyBookWorld


What to do with .AppleDouble folders.

I want to backup most of the data on my MyBookLive to my old MyBookWorld (blue ring).  Previously I’d copied from MBW to MBL so I have most of the data on both already which should save some time in doing a full backup.  BUT when compare the data the MBL has lots of .AppleDouble folders while the MBW does not.  Should I worry about these? Should I back up the .AppleDouble from the MBL to MBW? Or should I delete them all?

Hi there, I think you’ll find this basic article a bit helpful:

AppleSingle and AppleDouble formats

If I were you I’d let them be :slight_smile:
