I noticed this when I opened Disk Utility:

According to the information on the side, the file is located at
/Users/myimacname/Library/Application Support/Adobe/.D504FF07-96F3-4553-9FA9-47AB904ADAEB/F0F535C7-95C2-461E-BB37-9132E0DD4A42/8AEDA5E5-7710-4BD5-96A9-D0894E4FF457

When I clicked on it, I was brought to this folder:

Interestingly, this folder does not show up on Finder.

When I clicked on "get info," it is shown that these files were created on May 22nd. I restarted the computer multiple times since that date, but apparently they didn't go away….

How do I get rid of this? Can I just move these to Trash?

Thanks in advance

I would suggest that you are seeing the remains of a software update from Adobe. The Disk Image (DMG) file is still mounted in Disk Utility, that is why you can see it there. I used to get bothered by these things showing up, but once I realized where they were coming from, I do not.

Hello. Thanks for the reply. So, should I just leave them where they are? I am familiar with how Adobe updates' disk images show up in Disk Utility, but they unmount them after restarting the computer. But these files apparently did not...

Again, thanks for your insight.

I used to hunt these things down and unmount the image and delete all traces (being the paranoid person that I am), only for them to show up again after the next update. So, I would say, please do not worry about them.
