I'm trying to free up space in Google Drive. I came across a bunch of files with .apdb and .db extensions that look like photo library files such as Properties.apdb, Library.apdb, Photos.db, and Person.db and so on.

I think these came from an import I did from iPhoto into Google Photos a long time ago. I don't need them for iPhoto / Mac Photos anymore since I rely entirely on Google Photos now, but are these files needed for Google Photos?

Things tried

I searched the web for properties.apdb photos (and other files in the list) and the only relevant results were references to iPhoto libraries (1, 2, 3).

I also searched the web for properties.apdb Google Photos and found only references to the Google Photos API(1, 2) which I don't use.
