    is this on a live environment? – Sander Mangel Mar 30 '15 at 10:32
  • yes, in live..... we moved from one site to another..... – Baby in Magento Mar 30 '15 at 10:39
  • Put on hold as "too broad" ??? – SR_Magento Mar 30 '15 at 21:43

You have indicated this is a live environment which means visitors call the pages on the installation.

Whenever you remove a cache folder Magento will create a new version as soon as a user visits a certain page on the website. So this is actually desired behaviour

    Nope, you can flush cache and it'll apply your changes but will rebuild the cache right away – Sander Mangel Mar 30 '15 at 10:51
  • if i "flush magento cache" is that enough? – Baby in Magento Mar 30 '15 at 11:01
