Question taken from a recent support request :

Is it safe to remove the output files written by DB Archive utility ?
Does the Automation Engine database need them  ?


These files are not necessary for the database to operate. They are merely a backup copy of statistical entries and reports of previous object executions, which you can view with the Archive Browser.

Depending on your business needs (if for instance your business requirement is to keep a backup copy of activities for the last year), you can simply move them to a different location if you want to keep them. Otherwise they can be removed safely.
