resource.frk folder has 50 different ~*.gif files 11 Aug 2019 21:26 #11303

resource.frk folder has 50 different ~*.gif files say they are not valid image files and need to be deleted. I am not sure what these files do . I called Apple and they where not able to help. I do not want to delete these files to find out later they where necessary.
Can some please help.
Thanks

The fact that a file is flagged by the File Structures test does not necessarily mean that it is corrupted. The diagnosis means that the structure of the file does not meet the strict definition of the proper structure for a file of that type. This is explained on page 5.23 of the TechTool Pro 11.0.4 manual (page 48 of 135 of the pdf file in the Help menu).

If the file opens properly in an application that should be able to open it, it is not corrupted. A .gif file should open in any graphics program.

Files do open in preview or Graphic converter 10 updated.
I got this with preview.
It may be damaged or use a file format that Preview doesn’t recognize.
So i guess they are really corrupt files and should be deleted? I want to be sure before deleting.
Thanks for reply.

You are welcome.

If the files open in Graphic Converter 10, and you can see the contents, I would leave them alone. Preview is written by Apple, and it may be noting the same deviation from strict specifications that the File Structures test found.

I had tired earlier to open these files in preview and Graphic Converter 10. Neither application will open the files. Preview gives me the following error: It may be damaged or use a file format that Preview doesn’t recognize.
So I assume they should really be deleted at point correct? Wanted to be sure before I deleted something I be sorry about.
Thanks to the reply.

I am sorry if made you think graphic converter would open file. It will not open them either.

I suggest you look at the entire path to the folder and then try to determine what application is using it. Then move the folder to the Desktop or some other location you can remember, and see if there are any consequences as you use your computer.
