I've upgraded Biab2015 pro to Biab2018 UltraPak. Because I updated from 2015 to 2018 therefore there are many STL and st2 files still left on the BB folder. Can I delete these files ?

That's a good question we haven't run into yet.

I think the answer is going to be to run the cleanup utility again. It's just an .EXE in the /BB/Data folder. But I suggest calling PG Music Support if you have any hesitation or wait for further answers since everything should work as it is for now.

Looks like I was correct. I did some research and found a comment by Peter Gannon about just this issue:

The old installers will put many files in BB folder. Then the user should manually run the cleanup routine again. Either run the bb_cleanup.exe from the bb\data folder or from the help-utilities- menu in BB

They also plan further modifications to make this easier in the future.

Thank you for that info. Yes they are there.
That single Folder, should I just move it or should I run the Clean up again.

You could run Cleanup again; it can’t do any harm. In fact, running old installers will put files in the old folder structure and you have to run Cleanup again.
