    What does a regular files9 folder should contain on Luma3DS?
    I followed the Plailect Guide on the following link: https://3ds.guide using browserhax


    I'm asking this because I want to know if I have some unecessary
    Files that can be deleted.

    Thank you in advance.

    The files9 folder is used by hourglass9/decrypt9 to store files your NAND back ups, CTRNAND, or basically any files related to hourglass9/decrypt9.
    The files9 folder is not related to Luma3DS and is not used by Luma3DS.

    Thanks for the thorough explanation. But then again, what files should it contain?

    I have got these files:

    - aeskeydb.bin
    - E0E0FEBA_configsave.bin
    - E0E0FEBA_LocalFriendCodeSeed_B
    - E0E0FEBA_movable.sed
    - E0E0FEBA_SecureInfo_A
    - Hourglass9.log
    - hs.app
    - hs.enc
    - NATIVE_FIRM.app
    - NATIVE_FIRM.bin

    Is there something that I can get read of?

    Those are just backups from your system. I suggest just moving them off your SD card and storing them elsewhere. They really don't take up much space, but they really aren't useful to keep on your system.
    Hourglass9.log is a log file, so that will always come back when you use Hourglass9.

    If you did follow Plailect's guide then you should have seen this text saying what files is needed and what can be removed.


    You can remove any extra files and folders from the root of the SD card that are not in the following list:

    + 3ds
    + files9
    + hblauncherloader
    + luma
    + Nintendo 3DS
    + arm9loaderhax.bin
    + boot.3dsx
