I have deleted my personal documents using the proper way: first delete in my kindle paperwhite 2nd generation then on MYK (I have sent my personal documents to my kindle via the email).
So everything looks great until I connected my kindle via USB to my computer. The personal documents that I have deleted don't show up (which is what I expected) BUT their folders (ending with .sdr) are still there. They still contain the .pdt and .pds files.
Is it safe to remove them from USB connection? Some posts on this forum say that deleting via USB may interfere with the kindle software. In that case, is there a way to delete this folder via the kindle?

Thanks a lot for your help!
