    From what I can find in searching, these files, FOUND.00x's, are recovered clusters, right? Unless a user believes there is recoverable data there, is there any reason to keep these files? These are on a machine which will be for resale, so I'm trying to clean everything unnecessary or unwanted from the drive. Thanks!
