HP Colorado Bckp II, Ver 6.0 - Delete Files?

I have a HP Colorado Ext. 8GB Tape Drive, using HP Colorado Backup II, Version 6, on each of 2 machines. In the C:\Program Files\Hewlett Packard\Colorado Backup folder, there are four .001 files, each containing 747 KB and which were created last year on 03/31/01:


I "assume" those are temp files, as are most other *.001 files, and as such can be safely deleted. However, I would like to confirm that as well as learn the purpose/function of those files.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Before deleting them, move them to another directory. Wait a few backups, then you can safely delete them.

Thanks Harry. I appreciate your reply and advice. Given that those .001 files are now almost a year old, I doubt that they're needed. However, I will wait until after my next full backup prior to deleting them as you recommended.
