    I have a new mini that I am in the process of doing fresh installs of my major applications from discs rather than use migration.

    I installed Logic 9 as well as NI Komplete (6) and directed all the sample/audio content from both onto an external drive.

    All and good except I noticed in both cases a folder 'Library' was also placed onto the external as well. Within that folder is another folder 'Receipts', which contain both .bom and a matching .plist files.

    Now from what I've gathered so far, is that it seems Mountain Lion does a lot of things different from what I am used to (Tiger & Snow Leopard)

    What I think whats going on is that ML no longer needs these files and the applications installers wound up placing them on the external along with the content.
    Also I believe these files are a kind of 'install location' files and probably can be trashed.

    Anyone know whats up with this business?

    I read this when you first posted and my initial thought was "so what"? If everything works properly, why would you even care? Are these files taking up a lot of disk space?

    Sorry I have no insights, I have the app store version of Logic and I don't even know what NI Komplete is.
