Adding books from folder also imports books from unknown location

Hi All,

I have removed a previous version and installed the latest (2.53.0) on OSX (mac) but i have problems adding books to the library.
I have deleted the old library folder and emptied the trash.

I have made screenshots of what steps i followed you can see these in the attached pdf file.

I have removed all epub files from the harddisk in the computer, icloud drive, dropbox and Google drive.

I have no idee where these other files are coming from.
Maybe i have missed some thing when i deleted the old version. Ihave deleted the old version using AppCleaner.app

Any help is apriciated

If adding books is adding the files, then they exist in the folder you are adding them from. Remember that OS X has various types of hidden files and folders that dont show up in finder. For example, filenames starting with a dot. You can create rules to exclude these in Preferences->Adding books
