Windows 7: Is it safe to delete safel the content of the "ReportQueue" directory?

Is it safe to delete safel the content of the "ReportQueue" directory?

Is it possible to delete safely the content of the "ReportQueue" dir?

Here is where it's located:
C:\Users\TabathaCash\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WER\ReportQueue

It seems like this dir is keeping error reports when I had some system crashes. But some of those crashes occured while working on my Digital Audio Workstation (which loads several Gigs of RAM) so some of these reports weight about 1GB each. I'd like to save some disk space, that's why I need to know if I can delete these directories without running into some future troubles.

I tried to run CCleaner but it doesn't go near this dir.
What do you think?

Win7 has it's own disk cleanup utility that does (I believe) include these files to be removed

Type disk into the start search bar run the disk cleanup app and when at the selection screen pay particular attention to the log files entries - your issue files should be shown under per user queued items.

It should actually be ok to manually delete these files but this way you will also remove them from any internal index of files awaiting transmission

Your Welcome

I would advise the first time you do this that you take a backup of these files, if possible, just to make sure that everything is OK with the files not being there
