What are these files? Are these safe to delete?
Unless we know where these files are, it's nearly impossible to say...
as a rule ... if you are unsure ... do not delete them
They are in what I guess is the root directory of Macintosh HD. They are in the first folder that opens when I double click on Macintosh HD from the desktop.
I think it'd be safer just to not touch them. Especially if they're in the root directory
What does Get Info tell you?
Click it and see
This is the get info in one of the files...
If you don't know what it is, don't delete it.
Yes, I know that. That is why I am asking on here if any one knows what they are and if they are safe to delete....
Why not just leave them, since they're not hurting anything by being there. I'm sure if you did enough research, you could find the purpose for each file, but why waste the time?
Wow, you are such a great help. Thank you so much...
Seriously though, why even bother helping if you have nothing to contribute?
I am contributing. If you delete files without knowing what they are, you could be deleting files needed by Mac OS X or by other apps. Since there's no need to delete them, it's a wise recommendation that you don't. If you want to delete them, go ahead. You asked if it was safe to delete them. I answered your question. My answer is "if you don't know what they are, it's not safe to delete them."
If you don't want answers, don't ask questions.
You do not get it. I never had any intention of deleting these files with out knowing what they were. This is why I created a thread entitled, "Safe to delete these files" hoping that someone here would know what they were. If my thread was called, "Is it a good idea if I delete these files even though I have no idea what they are" then your help would be greatly appreciated.
I think these files are all related to jail breaking an iPhone.
Have you been jailbreaking an iOS device? (edit: need to remember to refresh page before submitting...)
Yes, I have jailbroken many iOS devices. I guess I'll move them all to their own folder and see what happens. Thanks for the help guys.
Yea those are jailbreak releated. It seems one of the jailbreaking tools put the files in an odd place than it normally does.
