Is it safe to delete data in TempState folder in ArcGIS Runtime UWP application

I have an application in ArcGIS Runtime api for UWP.

 

In application folder there is a TempState folder and when I am using online map services in this application, there are quite a lot files created in this temp folder. There are files without extension and .geodatabase files. I have examined a little this files and I am assuming, that they provides some local cache for used map services. Files without extensions seems to store tiles from tiled services, and .geodatabase files stores something for feature services and dynamic services.

 

My question is, if it is safe to delete this files on application restart. I know that if these are cache files it may affect performance, but are there any other side-effects?

 

The point is I don’t wish this folder to grow in size unlimitedly, so I want to perform some occasional cleaning.

 

Thank you
