ATA and BFA_ATA entries in wp_options table

I'm trying to clean up my wp_options table and saw there are entries for both ATA_[name] and BFA_ATA_[name], the latter having almost three times as many entries. Some option names are the same (e.g., "ata_archive_noindex" and "bfa_ata_archive_noindex"). There are some in ATA that aren't in BFA_ATA and many, many more vice versa.

I've been using (and updating) the theme for well more than a decade. Are the ATA_ entries update/upgrade remnants whose functions are incorporated in the BFT_ATA entries? In other words, do I need to keep the ATA_ options or would it be safe to delete them?

Hi, yes the ATA_ are old leftovers. BUT before deleting them do a database backup!

Actually, at this point there is only one row for all the options whth the option_name of 'bra_ata4' so you hshould be able to delete any other rows starting with 'bfa_ata...`

BUT BACKUP THE DATABASE FIRST!

Thanks Juggledad. As always, you're great. Deleted all the ATA and BFA_ATA options except "bfa_ata4" and everything still works.

Greatly appreciate your help.
