I stand to be corrected, but my understanding is that this file is created/updated at every instance of chkdsk
. Its used to keep track of which corrections, if any, are required to be made after the disk analysis.
So, the only way to prevent it from being created is not to run a chkdsk - not really feasible over the long term. It is completely safe to delete - only manual deletion is possible, there is no automatic deletion available.
