Why symbolic links to non evernote stuff in /Users/xxxxxxx/Library/Containers/com.evernote.Evernote/Data folder?

Recommended Posts

Since I am plagued by the "Untitled" and blank content problem on my Mac I am downloading the latest Evernote version directly from the Evernote servers.  I was also going to completely uninstall the old Evernote and data so the new install and data would be fresh.  When I went to the data folder I found symbolic links to my desktop, documents, download, movies, music and pictures folders. 

 

Why are there symbolic links to these non evernote folders in this folder?

 

How do I delete /Users/xxxxxxxxx/Library/Containers/com.evernote.Evernote without deleting my desktop, documents, download, movies, music and pictures folders?

 

$ pwd
/Users/xxxxxxxxx/Library/Containers/com.evernote.Evernote/Data

$ ls -l
