What are those files. I tried searching but nothing comes up....
Should I delete them?

Looks like Eset is running some diags either user-set or preconfigured and saving the logs in that folder. I wonder if those .dmp files can be opened in a debugger, although they are too large to be uploaded here. Suggest you back them up to an external, delete them from the hard drive, then contact Eset for info. I wonder if that sysinspector feature is responsible for this. Also, look around in the settings for anything useful.

Looks to me that you have taken off the log (directory size) limit. What is the latest / oldest file date in there?

latest: 02/07/2011 (dd/mm/yyyy)
oldest: 20/06/2011
Also I haven't touched the configuration of the program.

EDIT:
I think I found it....
The other options are minidump and nodump.

-no dump
-mini dump
-full dump (as in the pic)

Yup, as I said in my last post.
I send a form to eset before I discovered it, but they can at least tell me if I can delete them

Well I'm quite sure you can delete them since they are created for you to look at if you want... which you would if you had a problem. Not if you don't...
