I just found on my F drive (External harddrive) 2 files.
PXW90.TMP (1).GI 2,097,120 KB
PXW90.TMP (2).GI 1,072,672 KB
What are these and can I delete them, they are using a lot of space?

Do you have Roxio Creator? If so, those are temp files created by Roxio.

This post explains the file nomenclature of PXW*.tmp files. Those are 1.99 GB and 1.02 GB files.

I don't have any Roxio's on my computer now. The F drive is an external hard drive that I did have connected to my old computer, I think there was a Roxio on that one, so can I delete these two files?
