    ProgramData\Microsoft\Crypto - safe to delete files?

    ProgramData\Microsoft\Crypto ... RSA, Machine Keys, 2GB of files, can some of those files be safely deleted?

    The MachineKeys folder stores certificate pair keys for both the computer and users. Both Certificate services and Internet Explorer use this folder.
    - microsoft.com.

    I would not delete it, but if you really want to, I suggest you first move the files elsewhere for a few days and see it if breaks anything.

    Other sources also say to leave well enough alone; so, only if there ever is a need, then I'll worry about that section
