Is it safe to delete some files in the tmp folder and when reinstalling SuSE
is it possible to save the settings from the home folder to import all of the settings.

Deleting files from the tmp folder will not cause any harm.

Example:

Opening a zip file without extracting it causes the tmp folder to come into play.

The files are extracted @ tmp folder , but u dont realise them.(same for windows/linux)

This folder needs to be cleared periodically in windows/linux for better disk space.

Actually what were about to do won't harm yo pc or hdd.
