Business Objects File Store Output folder size

There are thousands of copies of an old report I wrote saved on my server.  I don't know why they were saved and they are taking a huge amount of space (7.7GB).

The files are in: \Business Objects\BusinessObjects Enterprise 11\FileStore\Output.

It's not just the output of a particular report on different days, but the source report file that I designed in Developer XI. The date range is also odd as the files stopped accumulating about one year ago.  I was, at one time, having Crystal automatically run the report each day, so I assume this was the cause.

Neither the output, nor the source is important to save.  I assume I can delete these with no issue as I have a copy of this particular report saved elsewhere to run a a later date.

Advice would be appreciated.

I don't know this for sure but it would seem like you can delete the files.  Be sure that one of the files isn't the copy installed in the BO XI or InfoView.
