    Hello everyone, I am a new mac user bought a rMBP 2 weeks ago and some some reason the internet connection gets lost every once in a while. Now that I got the internet back, there are folder in my desktop "Wireless Diagnostic".

    Not sure what it is, but is annoying me since it appears on the desktop. Can I delete this?

    Thanks in advance, and sorry if this was posted before but I could not find it anywhere.

    Yes you can. It's just a zipped archive of very verbose diagnostic logs.

    Picking up this very old thread, I also have a big zipped tar/gz file titled WirelessDiagnostics created when I ran Wireless Diagnostics on my iMac. Looks like these files are now stored in the /var/tmp folder. Still okay to delete?

    Thanks, Howard.

    There are four other files that were created at the same time
    configd-pattern.plist
    configd-session.plist
    config-state
    configd-store.plist

    Okay to delete these too?

    I am not completely sure, but I'm fairly sure that those files contain your network settings. You should keep those.
