Our server has an AV folder that is very large, filled with ZIP files and X86 files and the latest date is dated 2007.  Is this a symantec folder and is it OK to delte it without causing any problems

    Thank you for your answer but I need to know if I can delete that folder without any ill effects.  It's not on a bootable drive and it appears they are Symantec files and folder that's no longer needed but I wanted to be sure before I trash it/them.

    Are you using Symantec AV?
    You should back the folder up then delete it, or just cut and paste it to the desktop.
