    Hi there,
    Those files have to do with your system history, collected by the WMI. So you can look back from a special date. (hardware, software, etc.)
    Not sure whether it is safe to delete their data inside. I see different advices in various forums about that.

    Thanks for the reply. Yes it is confusing, even reading them is confusing!!

    One of the them other day recorded the fact that I deleted TweakU from my system:blink:

    I ask because I never had many until recently, now I can get a couple or more a day.
