Well I backed my system up last week so I'm good if it does crash.
That's just the worst-case scenario, but it's good to be prepared. The file system runs certain consistency checks which can result in the creation of many small TMP files, though they won't all be called the same thing nor be 0 bytes in size. It's possible these files are related to some sort of app activity.
CHKDSK /R should reveal whether there's reason to worry about the drive's health.
