What are these file types and can I delete them?
Posted 17 January 2012 - 04:03 AM
coll_0x62d20043be50d290package.sig (and about 12 similar to that)
meta.data (4 of them)
dcdb0.ebc (2 of those)
I also found a whole bunch of package files in there, that I knew were CC, and moved them to a file outside the game on my desktop. Those other files listed above I know are not custom content but I'm not sure what to do with them. I am wondering if those "coll_0x62...." files are the EA collection files. I had those for a while and then some of my clean-up removed them.
I have screen shots of the other files but didn't want to take up so much space.

coll_0x62d20043be50d290package.sig (and about 12 similar to that) -- information concerning collection files
ccmerged.package -- back-up information concerning installed custom content. You can delete this but it will just be regenerated the next time you play.
collectionOrder.package -- information concerning collection files
TravelDB.package -- contains information for traveling to the WA destinations
userPresets.package -- This contains the information for any recolors or styling of objects, clothing, patterns, walls, floors, etc that you have saved.
*.nhd -- These store the information for your neighborhoods and the WA travel destinations.
meta.data (4 of them) -- information concerning your neighborhoods and travel destinations
dcdb0.dbc -- custom content that you have installed
dcdb0.ebc (2 of those) -- custom content that you have installed
dcc.ent -- information for custom content you have installed
And about the DCBackup folder...While it is perfectly safe to delete the files in there, if you plan on exporting any Sims or lots from your game to upload to a site or share with others then do not delete the files in there. When exporting lots or Sims, the game takes the information for the custom content used in those lots or Sims from the DCBackup folder. So if those files are not there, the CC used may not package with the exported file correctly.
