Please download MiniToolBox, save it to your desktop and run it.

Checkmark the following checkboxes:
  • List last 10 Event Viewer log
  • List Installed Programs
  • List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
Click Go and post the result (Result.txt). A copy of Result.txt will be saved in the same directory the tool is run.

Note: When using "Reset FF Proxy Settings" option Firefox should be closed.

Please download and run Temp File Cleaner it will clean up all your temp files and folders.

Then do another mini-tool-box just with the users, partition, and memory size selected.

What is creating these backups? Is it Microsoft Windows or another program?

How big is the back up file, and can you put it on another medium like a CD or DVD?

If you think its okay to delete then go ahead and delete it.
