    Benefit is something you'll need to determine on your own.

    If you can un partition, your best bet is with a partition manager EASEUS or Gparted. You could also copy all your important data to a PC and reformat it and restore your data....

    yeah i've noticed that i have at least 10 of those on my sdcard as well. i haven't done anything as far as partitioning or any of that...... what are the risks with deleting these files? what are they used for?

    thanks

    I've deleted these files a few times with no issues cropping up afterwards. I'd be surprised if the system would have problems with those files disappearing. After all, they are on the SD card, so there's always a chance that it could be switched or formatted or something, so the OS would have to have a way to re-create them or gracefully deal with it in some way.

    "diskcacheindex#####" occur when you unplug your droid from your computer without properly umounting it properly. All you need to do is use the Unmount feature in your dropdown screen before you unplug your USB.

    Also it is safe to delete these files from your SDCARD.

    100% truth right here.....i ALWAYS unmount properly. is there maybe a different cause? Vicious says i could just delete them which i after thinking about it i agree with cause they are only on my SD card...i have apps2card off so nothings really being pulled

    I do know when you download things from the market they will sometimes leave a file on your sd card.

    You know when you see download paused? I believe it places one there then when it resumes it picks right up.

    I run cachemate so it cleans all that off my sd card and I don't have any issues.

    Besides I'm sure if they were important files they would not have them stored on the sd card.

    Imagine the tech support nightmare that would cause because people deleting them : )

    I'm not 100% certain these are from downloads but I'm going to say it is probably very likely.

    What did you set in cachemate to delete them automatically?
    I have cachemate and checked clean SDCard but they are still there.
    Thanks
