An edb.chk icon has mysteriously appeared on my desktop. Can I just delete it?

.chk is generated auto when a program or system crashes or files aren't open properly. If SCANDISK or CHKDISK runs, all the error parts will be identified as lost file fragments

have you run chkdsk or harddrive tools recently?

Does this click here or this click here help?

Thanks for the replies. I googled it and it seems it is safe to delete.
