what is the function of the "tracing" file in my system folder

hello, there is a file named "Tracing" in my system folder (the folder that contain my music, my documents, my pictures etc). Inside the tracing folder is there wppmedia and other things.

What is the purpose of this folder, what would happen if I delete it?

If you use Messenger I believe that folder is what Messenger uses for your contacts, and some debugging information. I don't know what would happen if you deleted it, my guess is Messenger would just recreate the folder and file. It's safe and I would just leave it alone.

Hope that Helps
