Or should I say of the folders that contain files that are being dropped, do they also contain files you want to keep?No, I do not want to keep any of the files within these folders. The entire folder needs to go. However, there are some other pages in the root that need to go.
Have you noindexed the pages you want to disappear to help remove them from the serps and avoid a lot of 404s?Yes, I'm in the process of adding the following code in the head tag -
