[Fixed] 32-bit files & folders left behind after updating dual architecture apps

Dear John,

Thanks again for the awesome platform and the newest update!

I'm wondering if there's an easy way to delete the 32-bit files & folders in dual architecture apps when one is using exclusively 64-bit versions of apps & OS?

Have a great weekend

Manual only

There's no provided shortcut for this, but as things progress there's going to be less and less need for it.

A handful of apps have recently updated to 64-bit only, with legacy 32-bit packages available as a separate download. As more apps stop supporting 32-bit in their releases, and as their final 32-bit versions become further outdated you will see more of our packages split like that.

During Update

It happens as you update dual architecture apps after setting the option to either never or automatically when running on 64-bit Windows.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Thanks for your answer John.

Thanks for your answer John.
That's what I hoped but after setting the option to 'Automatic' and proceeding with the update of Firefox to '120.0.1' from previous 120 version, I checked the install directory and still had 2 folders 'Firefox' and 'Firefox64' that contain the 120.0.1 exe file

Confirmed

I can confirm the issue on Windows 64-bit with it set to Automatic. I'll take a look at it in the morning.
