    Hello, is it safe to delete files in /var/log/DiagnosticMessages ?
    The fact is that i noticed in console that a lot of messages seem to be corrupted and cannot be read:
    Code:

    13/02/11 23.43.29	SubmitDiagInfo[8936]	SubmitDiagInfo successfully uploaded 4 diagnostic messages.
    And only 4 were uploaded. Most are of 2010. I just trimmed the errors because there was about 40 of these.
