So, I was messing with this folder and while doing this I turned show hidden files on and saw some strange files. These are the names of them, and sizes

.dat8ad4.007 (733K)
.dat011e.000 (704K)
.dat1267.003 (402K)
.dat2eb2.06d (396 Byte)

The top files are hex files, and the last one is some weird encoded text and a link to a youtube channel. What are these files?

  • FWIW: My Safari folder does not contain files like that. Which OSX? – qwerty_so Mar 2 '15 at 23:23
  • Are they directly in ~/Library/Safari? All I get is .DS_Store. – 0942v8653 Mar 2 '15 at 23:33
  • Im using Yosemite, but some of the files are very old, older than 5 years. – DisplayName Mar 2 '15 at 23:47
  • I suspect that you'd be fine just deleting them. – douggro Mar 3 '15 at 8:43
  • @dougggro yeah I know, but I'm more interested as to what they are. – DisplayName Mar 3 '15 at 9:16
