Can I delete a Rapidweaver folder in application support?

I was just looking through the computer and found a Rapidweaver folder in my user Library applications support folder. I gather this relates to RW4 that I used briefly ages ago but contains some elements such as various stacks and themes that are current. Is it safe or advisable to delete this folder?

I am now using RW 6 and it seems the main data is stored elsewhere.


If you have definitely successfully converted/exported everything to RW6, or installed Addons, Themes, Plugins etc anew, it is safe to delete ~/Library/Application Support/Rapideaver because - as you correctly say - only RW’s up to and including version 5 used that location.

With RW6 those Addon files are in the ~/Library/Containers hierarchy.

But in case you still have residual RW5 files and/or may need to go back and Export/convert other earlier versions, you might want to zip up and store the files in ~/Library/Application Support/Rapideaver.

It’s weird because I never used RW5. My suspicion is that when I first tried RW6 I must have found that folder with a few RW4 items inside and figured the various stacks and themes should be stored there then promptly forgot it. I only played with RW4 briefly many years ago and never created any sites. I think I’ll zip the folder to see if there are any problems and if not I’ll delete it as you suggest.

Good strategy. If RW6 is working satisfactorily, you’ll be OK :slight_smile: .

The location for all previous versions of RapidWeaver was the same App Support folder.
