    Hello, I have upgraded to El Capitan and things are running smoothly. I was using the program LaunchControl to check and look at a few things and noticed there is the following .plist file com.apple.FolderActions.enabled in "/System/Library/CoreServices/Folder Actions Dispatcher.app/Contents/MacOS/Folder Actions Dispatcher" that is running throwing out some Error 78. Doesn’t seem to be harming anything but I looked in Core Services folder and saw a bunch of applications without icons with a date modified from a year ago and am wondering if there are a lot of leftover files from the upgrade that are meaningless and if there is a way to figure out if I should delete anything or if it would make more sense to do a clean install. Currently everything runs fine so I am not sure I want the inconvenience but was curious.

    Do not delete anything in the CoreServices directory! If you delete things in there you'll break your OS X installation and nothing will work correctly.

    You said everything is working fine. If that's the case, there's nothing to troubleshoot. Without actual symptoms and system logs with the error, there's no way to begin to diagnose what might be going on.
