This is a replacement for the old Dr. Watson.  You can delete, but it is advised that you download the windows disk clean up utility  that is not installed by default in Windows 2008.  You will need to install Desktop Experience (will require a reboot).

Also check your Windows Uninstall directory and log files to reclaim more space.

You must have an app that is crashing if you have gb worth of data.

As always, make sure you have a backup before deleting any system files or log files found under a Windows directory!

Yes, you can. These files are nothing but Error Reports.

You can delete them manually or run Disk Cleanup tool.

If you do not want error reporting, then you can turn off Windows Error Reporting through the following link.
