What are these files?
CarlyRaeJepsenS (1)

Hello everyone, I recently imported a glitch project into replit. I see these files in my sidebar:

Can I delete any of these? I am unfamiliar with files like ".e9vkfyit1exb". Additionally, what is the purpose of "shrinkwrap.yaml" and ".glitch-assets"?

If i were you, i would delete ".e9vkfyit1exb". I don't know about other files, they all have things in them, but this one does not have anything, so its safe to delete it

@Muffinlavania and by the way we cant see the .env file, but if that has nothing in it as well i would delete it too

Click the three dots next to them and select delete, say "yes delete the file". If this helped marked it as answered

@coderash I'm asking what the files are, not how two delete files.

oh, well they are glitched files injected into your document when an error occurs and replit tries to fix it, a fix would be to either create new project and paste in code or go back with history. @CarlyRaeJepsenS

@coderash Hmmm... what about shrinkwrap.yaml ?

By looking inside, it looks like a packages/dependencies folder @CarlyRaeJepsenS
