   Yes it is ok, to delete these files.

   .dmp files are created when a program crashes, and is there to help you fix the problem.  The method for accessing these files depending the application that created this file.  

    You can stop this file from being created by turning off the debug mode of the application that is creating these files.  

   Hope this helps.
