I wanted to extract opencart folder in a new folder to test something but I made an error and extracted in the OC folder for my root website, looks like everything works the same, but I think there are more files, is this a problem that I need to fix?

As long as it's the same version and you did not modify any core files previously, it shouldn't be a problem.

I usually ask people to do this if they are recovering from a hack or malware infestation so the core files are restored to correct versions.

You may have a couple of un-needed files which you can delete, such as config-dist.php and admin/config-dist.php

Ok, I extracted a standar opencart file, same version, nothing changed inside. I wanted to make sure these files didn't override my existing files and made the site more vulnerable to attacks.
