I updated to LR v11 a while back & now want to delete the old catalog. Of course I want to be careful not to delete the current catalog files. This might sound a bit elementary but can I assume that the catalog files titled "Lightrroom Catalog Classic 2 -v10-v11" are the files associated with LR v11? And the other files titled without the "v10-v11" designation are associated with the previous version of LR?

Thank you so much.

Thank you, Califdan. The only other file that I have is "Lightroom Library.lrlibrary"
That would be your 'Local' version of your Cloud database, including previews.
You can control the size of this 'cache' in the Preferences in Lightroom. (not Lightroom-Classic)
I understand that if deleted it will automatically be re-built.
