Moving a vm, question about 'leftovers'

VBox 6.0.8 on Win10

Just discovered, and used, the 'move' function to relocate a VM from my C: drive to a second, internal drive, designated as F:. Everything seems to have worked fine, but I have some question about what I'm seeing.

Let's call the vm vbdb121-01.
After the move, on my c: drive I still have a folder 'vbdb121-01'. In it, there is a 'logs' directory which is empty, and a 6kb file named 'vbdb121-01.vbox-prev. What is this file, and why is the directory left over on the original location?

It's the previous .vbox file from the previous run of the VM. You can safely delete it.
