Can't tell if this applies to you but this is a filestore database that was created by some application in your server. Don't delete anything before you find out what service is using the database. Even then, there should be formal procedures to clean up, don't just delete the files, you will corrupt the entire database. Are you running any archiving products on your server?

Hi thanks for your reply and I dont have any idea about archiving products this server is for XP performance.

That's probably it. the XP software is using this database as a repository. Don't delete anything, find out what you can do to clean up within the XP software.

From PA, select Data Retention

Use the Database Configuration screen to specify how much disk space for the database to use.

Enter the number of gigabytes of disk space reserved for the database.

Click Save to save the change to the database.
