Massive Amount of Files

I have about 700 articles in my Zotero library and noticed when copying my library to an external drive that there are 17,838 files...that's about 25 files per article. Any thoughts on what all these files are and if I can delete them? Most of them end in .js, -cache, .svg.

    Webpage snapshots can involve lots of little files.

    You can delete the webpage snapshots in Zotero if you want to, but this is perfectly normal and nothing to worry about.

    (A future version of Zotero might simplify saved snapshots a bit to avoid some of these files, some of which are just ad junk.)
