sorry if I'm in the wrong spot.
Moving to the point, I'm trying to clean up my system drive a bit, and noticed that under \users\(accountname)\appdata\local\NVIDIA\NvBackend\Packages\ that I've got some 844MB of stuff sitting there, various DAO.(numbers).exe files, which upon further investigation appear to be selfextracting archives containing heaps of xml files, lua files, translation-list text files, and icon-size images that are presumably for nvidia control panel and nvidia geforce experience to use in their UIs when listing things for optimization/settings customization and so forth. Loads of games, most of which I've never had and some of which I've never even heard of. Various stuff's repeated through the various archives, to the point I get the impression that these are basically a sucessively updated listing.
The question is, can I delete most of these safely? I've had no real luck trying to search for an answer, with search results dominated by stuff relating to people's malware concerns. These... I'm not worried about in that light. I just want to conserve drive space. This pileup of stuff goes all the way back to 2014, and if most of it is identical and/or in deprecated formats (I notice that the exact path structure within the archives isn't the same in the most recent as in the oldest)... Should it be safe to toss, it'll be tossed, but I'd rather not break things trying to find out by stabbing blindly at the issue, and with (search engine of choice) not proving much help, the next step is "make a forum post" and here we are.
