Cleaning-up remnant 1PW files / folders

I've been using 1PW for enough years that I've gone through (very easily, I can add) a number of upgrades. In preparation for the forthcoming 1PW4 MAS, I'm attempting some desktop system file / folder clean-up in relation to possible remnant 1PW files / folders that may no longer be in use with 1PW 3.9.6. MAS. So, let me ask about the following items, specifically if they can be manually - safely - deleted.

Let me add, for clarification, I also use 1PW4 iOS along with 2 x 1PW 3.9.6. MAS apps. All are syncing with Dropbox.

Currently, 1PW 3.9.6. MAS backs-up to the following folder: user/Library/Containers/com.agilebits.onepassword-helper (and, then, deep into additional nested folders)
- This same Containers folder also has nested: com.agilebits.onepassword-osx + com.agilebits.onepassword-thumbs
I assume that these respective folders are key to 1PW 3.9.6 MAS and must not be deleted. (Please confirm.)

However, I see that my user/Library folder contains within Application Support a 1Password folder (that contains 4 nested folders, one of which is Backups - currently containing an old backup file). The other 3, nested folders are: Agents, Extensions, Fill. ...Can the senior folder (1Password - containing all the others) be safely deleted?
- If No, what are these folders doing (since the Backups folder contains an old backup)? ...Also, I'm curious about what the other folders are doing, particularly Extensions & Fill. {Extensions contains 3 folders that have names using 5-digit number. Fill has 3 plist files for web logins.
- If Yes, are there any other folders (sitting around that can also be deleted)?

    1Password 3.9 stores all of its support files in the sandbox container. You don't want to remove anything from:


    1Password 3.8 stores all of its support files in the "Application Support" folder. If you are no longer using 1Password 3.8, you can safely archive the data from:

    ~/Library/Application Support/1Password

    I hope you don't spend too much time on this over the holidays. :)

    Merry Christmas!
