I have windows installed using boot camp. I am running out of space on that partition so I started looking at files to get rid of. Files with the names of "Found.000, Found.001, etc" are nearly 1GB or larger in size. Are these files needed to run the windows partition correctly or am I safe to delete? Any help would be greatful. Thank you.

Perhaps....
If Windows XP Professional cannot identify the folder or if the folder does not exist, it saves each chain of lost clusters in a folder called Found.xxx, where xxx is a sequential number starting with 000. If no folder Found.000 exists, one is created at the root. If one or more sequential folders called Found.xxx (starting at 000) exist, a folder that uses the next number in the sequence is created.
