Core Files in Administrator Folder

Postby timdog » Sat Dec 24, 2005 3:39 am

Please forgive me if this is the wrong forum for this question or if this turns out to be a stupid joomla newbie question. I have installed Joomla a few weeks back and have been slowly learning how to use it. I have noticed two files in the administrator folder that are both 41.09 MB in size. They are core.29128 and core.29809. I am not sure what they are for or why they are almost 85 megs in size. Can someone please let me know if this is normal or if I should delete them?

thanks
tim
