Something on my hard drive was eatingup all myspace and I found a directory that is full of log files eating up 109GB of space:

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Search\Data\Applications\Windows\Projects\SystemIndex

What is this "directoryand how can I get it to stop?

It looks like there are 2 files: systemindex... that are doing it.

 Can I safely delete them?
