Not sure what you mean - "clean up"??

is it safe to delete them?

It's perfectly SAFE to delete. But you're asking the wrong question.

You should be asking yourself if you know which files have been compressed and whether or not you need those files.

Can you go into the back up file and take a look at what is on there?
