Is it safe to delete files in 'walarchive' from ArcGIS DataStore backups?

ArcGIS DataStore schedules regular backups of its database every 7 days by default and retains them for 31 days.

Due to this, the disk space is getting filled up over a period of time.

 

I am also seeing that most of the disk space is occupied at "C:\arcgisdatastore\backup\walarchive".

 

I am thinking these are postgres db archive files as the name suggests.

 

Is it ok to clean up this directory completely from time to time?

Will this affect the ability to restore backups?
