    I have a lot of files with the .edb extension in this folder:

    C:\ProgramData\McAfee\MPF\data\Archive

    What are they?

    Could they be safely deleted?

    They are Microsoft Exchange Server files that are most commonly used for mailbox data saves.
    Since they are from a McAfee folder, I assume that they are database logs of scans that have been performed.

    Files that contain the .edb file extension are most commonly used by mailbox data files that have been saved by the Microsoft Exchange Server.

    EDB is an acronym for Exchange Database. The EDB files are exchange database files that store in-process and non-SMTP messages. These files are formatted using the b-tree structure. Each EDB file has a corresponding STM file which contains the actual SMTP messages.

    Adobe Photoshop also uses the .edb file extension. In the PhotoShop application, the .edb file suffix is used for extended digital books that have been created with the application.

    The ACT! email also uses the .edb file extension. These EDB files contain email data files that are used by the software end ACT! email data files.
