Appdata questions - combining, tidying up

I've been going over my appdata directory and have found a couple of issues.

 

1. There are remnants from dockers I once had installed but since removed

2. Somehow I have ended up with two appdata directories - one called 'appdata' and one called 'appdatal' 

 

I'd like to

 

A. Remove the old unused directories from non-existing dockers

B. Consolidate everything back to the original 'appdata' directory

 

Regarding A, can I just delete these?

 

Regarding B, I would assume the approach would be to:

 

i. Shutdown all dockers

ii. Make a backup of both 'appdata' and 'appdatal'

iii. As root, copy subdirectories from 'appdatal' to 'appdata'

iv. Manually go through all of the dockers and edit to ensure that directory paths concerning appdata now point to 'appdata' and not 'appdatal'

v. Start one docker at a time, check that it works and watch its log for anything that seems wrong - as well as check the old entries in 'appdatal' using 'ls -lah' to see if there has been any access after the reconfiguration.

 

Does this seem like a sound approach?
