    I was looking for a file I downloaded to my iphone in iFile and saw that I have several odd files with long numerical names in the downloads folder.
    On closer inspection, they are all itunesmetadata.plist files corresponding to songs I recently bought from iTunes directly on the iPhone.
    I've never seen these before in this location.
    Should they be there? Can I delete them?

    FYI: iPhone 5, jailbroken 6.1.
    Example of file:
    /var/mobile/Media/Downloads/-410738523196265755
    Thanks,
    Ryan

    I found like 7 Gbs of hung up movie downloads in that folder. I just deleted them and I freed up the space and I have not seen any negative reprecussions from the delete.
