Dropbox - lots of old files

I just upgraded to MD 2019.1, but I think this has been building up for a while. I've been using the Dropbox Folder sync for a while, but I realized that there are more than 300MB in the .moneydance folder. Some of these files have access times more that 18 months old.

Is there any way to clean up these files? I saw something in the release notes about the backup files being consolidated, but it wasn't clear if this applied to the DB files.

    I am not support staff, just a user.

    In your position I would reset syncing.

    If you need instruction when first post.
    What devices are you syncing including their operating systems?
    Can you confirm the build of 2019.1 is 1855?
    Are you only syncing one data set?
    In the folder on Dropbox “.moneydancesync” is there only one folder.
