I seem to recall that those files are, or can be, generated on a daily 
basis.  You can turn off generation entirely or schedule a batch job to 
run every "X" days or hours and clean up any files that are no longer 

If you don't need them turn them off.  If you do need them, create a 
batch job to clean up at whatever interval seems reasonable.
