Delete priv1.edb and priv1.stm from old Exchange, already moved mailboxes

Hi, we acquired an add'l Exchange Server awhile back and we've already moved mailboxes off, but we need the link between their domain and ours to exist for a little while so the old employees can easily access the shares for regular file storage (the server was dual-purposed).  We do need to reacquire some more disk space, however; thus, can I simply delete priv1.edb and priv1.stm to do so since we don't need them anymore (defragging them won't give us enough), or will that cause ill effects when we finally do get around to removing the old domain and adding the server to our domain?

To get new fresh databases, just dismount the store(s) contained by this SG, then delete the 2 database files (EDB and STM) corresponding to the store you dismounted.
When mounting the store, the exchange server will pop a warning and create a fresh database.

before you actually delete them, dismount the store for sometime. if users don't report back any issues then it would be safe to delete the databases.
