You can still re-generate them with the mkpasswd/mkgroup commands, but thatâs strongly discouraged.
These files are not removed if present, even when upgrading pre-1.7.34 to 2.0+, so if you copied over a prior installâs /etc contents, theyâll still be there many setup.exe passes later.
Perhaps the mtime on those files will give you a clue.
