Delete System Volume Information Log Files

The C: drive (with 95GB total capacity) on or Windows Server 2008 r2 is almost full. Checking the size of the various folders on the drive, I found that the ‘System Volume Information’ folder is 40GB; most of which are log files.

See attached Example:
There are more than 100 of these log files. Can I (how) safely delete these files to regain space on the hard drive before it fills up?

It seems these are AppAssure 5  logs. if yes then you can delete it.

To delete the log files, grant Administrators group full access to the \System Volume Information folder, and delete an files of the form AALog_{<big-hexguid>}_<epoch-number>.log.

Thanks!! it worked. Since Exchange runs in this server, I thought it was Exchange related.... I never thought about AppAssure.
