Unused files generated into the server location

Hello All,

I found some strange files generated in my directory of Qlik Prod, these files take much space and I don't know if I should keep them or delete them,

I added a screenshot,



Could someone help me please,

My hunch is those are temp files from distributions that failed, but I do not see a .tmp extension on them, so I cannot be sure, but that is generally what the GUID based files are is temp files when in the QVS user doc directories.  They should be safe to delete, but you may want to archive them off to another folder first just in case.
