Two (2) Kindle File Location(s)

I'm moving from one Android device to another, and notice that, somehow, I've got TWO (2) Kindle folders on my current Android device. I'm mainly concerned to transfer the .mbp files for books that I've converted and added to my Kindle library, ones that Kindle won't sync and transfer and thus, ones I'll LOSE if I don't transfer them by hand. I've got lots of annotations and highlights in those little files, and whilst I thought I was doing a fair job of tracking them, I've got so many Kindle books in my collection that it gets hard to see what's what.

Anyways, here are the two Kindle directories on my current device:



I'm reasonably confident that I created the first directory manually when I was copying some converted eBooks for safekeeping to my phone, or just trying to sideload them to my Kindle reader w/o using the email CONVERT feature of Kindle. The bulk of my Kindle books seem to reside in the latter directory.

Not quite sure what to do at this point to make sure I don't lose anything. Should I just move everything from the /sdcard/kindle directory into the second directory and see what things look like afterwards (backing up the first directory, of course)?

Advice, especially based on experience, appreciated. Thanks.
