When looking at the contents of my C drive I notice there are alot of files that are not placed in folders, but instead are listed after the folder.  I don't know how they got there and I suspect they aren't especially necessary.
Can anything be done to clean up there lose ends. I have over 40 entrys.

The following files are all needed. The others may be needed depending on what and where you have installed applications to.

autoexec.bat
bootlog.prv
bootlog.txt
command.com
config.sys
dblspace.bin
drvspace.bin
io.sys
msdos.sys
suhdlog.---
suhdlog.dat
system.1st
wina20.386


If you are booting into your old version of dos then there will be the following files.

autoexec.dos
command.dos
config.dos
io.dos
msdos.dos
