This is first time I have seen in one extension, _notes folder. I am trying to understand what's the logic having this file.


This extension has 2 files, that I don't understand

  1. Module/controllers/Adminhtml/Catalog/_notes/filename.xml
  2. Module/Model/_notes/filename.xml

In that file it has following content:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
     <file name="Observer.php" server="[example.vizz.extension]/public_html/" local="[some_numbers]" remote="[some_numbers]" />

In Module/controllers/Adminhtml/Catalog/_notes/filename.xml there is only file name different.

Any idea on this?

I know this is third party extension and most likely this question will get closed. But I am more of asking about the code/file that exist in this module.

dwsync.xml is a file created by Dreamweaver. Dreamweaver uses it to synchronize files in a Dreamweaver project.

The dwsync.xml files are located in the _notes folders, which are hidden by default in Dreamweaver. So check for the _notes folders and dwsync.xml files in the Windows Explorer or Mac file browsers. The dwsync.xml files only reside locally. Dreamweaver never uploads the dwsync.xml files to the server, and there is no reason to upload them to the server.

You can find more info from this link

So I think form this we can easily say that they have developed or open extension files on Dreamweaver. You can easily remove this directory it's not usable by Magento.

  • I have checked this and it's working fine in my system. :)

The _notes folders do not belong there. The person who created the module most likely built it on Windows. Those folders are generated by Windows and they are safe to delete.
