Solved Is it safe to delete mobilesync backup files?

Specs: Windows 8.1
I need to recover space on C: and found 4 of these large files from 2017, 2018 and 2019 from backing up iPhones. I can't see any reason to keep the 2017 and 2018 files so would like to know if I'm asking for trouble in some way I have not considered if I delete said files?

✔ Best Answer
May be better to just move them to a flash (or other removable) drive to be safe....

That sounds reasonable. Thanks. I'm surprised the phone backup files are still being written to C: as I put in a redirection command a while back and all the rest of iTunes' files are being written on F: (Data drive).

If you don't use a cleaning program, you might wanna consider trying CCleaner-Slim or CCleaner Portable.
