Safe to delete file in the /var/atlassian/application-data/jira/export folder

Hello,

This is a pretty simple question: Is it safe to delete file in the /var/atlassian/application-data/jira/export folder ?

There is a tons of old files in there and i would like to free some space on my server drive.

Hi Michel,

It shouldn't be a problem.

Those are automatic backups and exports.

Assuming that is the Jira home directory, then yes - the files in there are created by the regular backups, or by an admin saying "export". If you don't need them because you have more recent copies and/or a database backup, they are safe to remove.

Use the OS to look at the size, and then delete it.
