Magento 1.9.4 --> Magento 2.4.2-p1

I have done the settings and data migration by using the Magento Migration Tool. I am now using FTP to download all folders and subfolders in the MEDIA directory on Magento 1 with the plan of re-uploading this to the MEDIA folder in Magento 2. Looking at the subdirectories of my Magento1/public_html/media directory:

captcha
catalog 
css 
css_
secure 
customer 
dailydeal 
dhl 
downloadable
email 
favicon 
import 
js 
magpleasure 
porto 
smartwave 
tmp 
wysiwyg
xmlconnect 
.htaccess

It seems that some of these folders have to do with the Porto theme which I will install and configure fresh for Magento 2 and also some extensions which again I will install specifically in their Magento 2 versions later.

Would someone be able to advise which of these subcategories can be skipped when re-uploading the Media folder via FTP to the new Magento 2?
