i've just done a duplicate check of my hdd and realised that the files in the 'blocks' subfolder of my bitcoin data directory are exact duplicates of files in the main data directory itself.

is it safe to delete 1 copy of each? if so, should i delete the ones in the main data dir, or delete the ones in the 'blocks' folder?

I deleted these in the main data directory and everything works fine.

Moving on is a simple thing,
what it leaves behind is hard...
