I've got a folder with a huge amount of very large files i.e. c:\windows\panther.  From what I've read it is an old folder that was created when the server was built.  

Can the files be safely deleted?

The contents of the C:Windows\Panther folder usually has to with sysprep or upgrades. If an upgrade installation of Windows is performed the Panther folder can easily fill up and take up gigabytes of space. From my experience deleting the contents of the folder shouldn't have any negative effects.
