    Hahahaha, weird part on Apple's labeling them "omnomnom". Kinda funny, actually. Just weird that they contained nothing.

    Those are test files, thus temporary. You can just delete them.

    Two files were created that night it was being repaired, labeled "omnomnomnom" and "null". They were blank text files with nothing!...

    Since the HDD was replaced, it's fairly clear they were testing it by creating those huge blank files - I guess they just forgot to delete them.

    Just delete them yourself - it's really no big deal.

    There is randomness in them to TEST the new HDD. Again, just ****ing delete them.

    You're lucky that they bothered to copy any of your data to the new drive, as they're under no obligation to preserve it. You got extra back! :D

    I think it's labelled appropriately for the amount of HD space it's eating up.
