I have about 12GB of some .partial files, are they safe to delete?

They were created back in January and are in the following path:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\BioWare\Star Wars - The Old Republic\assets_swtor_test_main_-1to0

There are 12 files following this same basic filename structure: assets_swtor_test_main_-1to0.z01.partial

Not sure what these are but I'd like to free up the room if possible.

Hi Kadin,

While I can understand you wanting to free up some space we would not advise manually deleting any asset files from the installation folder.

Thank you for your time.

Since these all include the .partial extension, I can't believe they're actively being used by the game. What purpose do these files serve? And in a folder with the name 'test' in it, seems like something attempted to download and didn't succeed.

Hi again Kadin,

Given the file name it is possible that these are files related to the Public Test Server.

However, I must stress again that it is not advised to delete any asset files; it could have an unforeseen adverse affect on your main game installation/performance.

Thank you.
