Hello, I have removed a Mailbox Database and deleted the edb file however because the mailbox had not been backed up in a while there are still some log files in the old folder the filenames begin with E000019FCD9 etc. There also some other files in the folder but they are taking space. Is it safe to delete them?

I removed the Mailbox Database after moving all the mailboxes to a new mailbox database

if you have already deleted Mailbox database, for that Exchange 2010, and corresponding .edb file, then you can delete those log files.

There are of no use for you, since you don't have either backup or .edb file.

Yes.  Just make sure there aren't any other databases using that specific folder.  That shouldn't be the case, but I would check first.
