    my dad works for nintendo.
    i just updated a bunch of stuff on my O3ds including a9lh instalation, howeve i recall in some point of the guide that for example slot key files are now bundled in a single file... (someone tell me what is the bundle file called and if i can delete theese ones)

    can someone tell me what files i can clean up and what they are used for? (click for zoom)
    tooooooo many files.PNG

    folders like tickets cia angel and twlsave tool are created by homebrew which i use and know what they are for...

    that files9 folder is empty, i assume i can delete it right away.

    if i delete the 2 log files will they be created again? should i keep them?

    FBI inject.app. The rest are needed by programs you use.

    Luma3ds.dat isn't needed as long as you updated your arm9loaderhax.bin (which happens to be 69 kb btw).
    Put nand9 on your hdd.computer somewhere and delete that to get a GB of space back

    this one was intentional. and will keep it because one more isolated copy is safer (and i actually don't need the space. i just want to organize this)

    why did you needed Luma3ds.dat ?

    The .log files aren't needed, they are safe to delete. You also seem to have two homebrew Launcher payload files, only the one corresponding to your current firmware version is needed, the other one can be deleted.

    Things that can go:
    • decrypt9.log
    • fbi_inject_with_banner.app
    • hblauncherloader_otherapp_payload_OLD_11-0-0-33-EUR.bin
    • hourglass9.log
    • hs.enc
    • luma3ds.dat (make sure Luma3DS is up to date first)
    • screenshots_raw.bin
    Things that should be moved into your files9 folder:
    • encTitleKeys.bin
    • NAND9.bin
    • seeddb.bin
    • the 4 slot key files.
    Also, you should have a D9Game folder inside your files9 folder if you don't already or certain dumping functions in Decrypt9 and hourglass9 will fail.
