Windows 7: wer report archive

wer report archive

Running Windows 7 home premium 64 bit.
I have a lot of disk space taken up with files in WER reportarchive and WER\reportQue. Can I safely delete all these crash reports? I have no intention of ever sending them out.

I like making backups of my files on cloud services, for instance SkyDrive and Dropbox. (I have their apps running on my Windows 7 machine that sync two of my local folders.)

Does Windows 7 come with anything as standard? If not is there a good online archive application as my wife is a control freak who doesn't like me to install anything? I need to archive BSOD dump files. 2 of them are over 11000 KB
