What are these folders? Safe to delete?

There is this folder structure on my PC (running Vista) and I was wondering if it was safe to delete:

"C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\Logs\CrashReporter\MobileDevice\{devicename}\"

Under this folder are two subfolders:

Baseband\
Panics\

Why do want to delete them, they shouldn't take up much space? I wouldn't, unless you no longer have the device you are referencing. Otherwise these folders are used by iTunes when syncing. I am not sure if they would be auto-recreated but why take a chance?

The logs store OS, baseband, and app crash info. This is sent to Apple if you agreed to it when setting up the device to sync for the first time.

Yeah, I have a folder structure for a no-longer-owned device and wanted to delete that particular device's folder.

While I was at it (and since I declined to send any diagnostic info to Apple), I wanted to go ahead and clean out the whole thing. It must be the OCD in me. :dft008:surprised

I'll go ahead and zap the older device's folder.

yes I didn't agree to it either. And looking through the logs I'm glad I didn't: too many jailbreak apps in there! ;)
