I know that there are similar questions, but I could not find one that asked about this, specifically. I am running Mojave (10.14.6) on a 2017 iMac 27/5K. In the ~/Library/Mobile Documents directory, I have several directories that are either for iOS applications

  1. I no longer use/have deleted, and/or
  2. I still use, but for which there is at least one (in some cases more) duplicate.

Two examples are in the screenshot, below:

When I try to remove these directories, they almost instantly reappear.

How do I permanently remove these unwanted and unneeded directories?

  • Are those folders showing some occupancy in iCloud preferences, under manage storage tab ? System Preferences is being talked about.
