Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The .dbf files are typical database files. In fact, it can be anything. The fact is that you should only delete the files that you know and you are completely sure that it will not damage your system.
In case of doubt, do not delete it.

    Unless we know everything you have installed on the system along with your OS plus version (and possibly full hardware platform), we have no way to know if anything can/should be deleted.

    You could rename a file by adding an extension such as ".DELETE" to make it easily recognizable while retaining the original name. Then after a reboot, watch behavior for enough days to test installed programs. If all is well, backup the file and delete it.

    That ought to be done a file at a time. If a renamed file makes the system unusable, you'll only want to recover a single file to things running again.

    I take ravens advice. Rename the file extensions in question. Then see if there is anything that no longer function properly. Then back up all these files before you delete them..If you have a question on aq file extension, these are two good sites for info on then and what programs and applications use them.

    Dbf files are typically data base file that hold data or entered part of information. If you delete it you may loose your valuable data. It is better to keep backup of those files/ folders to another drive or flash drive then go for that. However without knowing all details it is not recommended to delete any files/ folders/ software.
