    Most of those are system files. You do NOT want to delete them.

    the .QT things are thumbnails.

    Careful, ppl are on the witch hunt to burn ppl at the stake for referring questions to Google. :eek:

    I agree with Consultant though, IMO just let em go. Windows has a crap load more junk files floating around that nobody cares about and leaves alone.

    They're fine left alone. If you must delete them, I can again only agree with Consultant, Google it. You'd find your answer quick but really, they're harmless.

    I think they're related to the trash. Try emptying the trash.

    It's not going to do you much good; the .DS_Store and .localized will simply be regenerated.

    It's probably best to leave them because OSX has a ton of hidden files which keeps it up and running. Personally, I would just leave those. It shouldn't be affecting anything on your computer. If it is, google: Mac OSX hidden files and try to find it there. If nothing helps, then call Apple and ask them if it is ok to delete them. Good luck!
