Goal

On the OBIEE server, the following files are created and not removed.

C:\Oracle\Middleware\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain\servers\bi_server1\tmp\_WL_user\bipublisher_11.1.1\...\public\xdo\cache

File Names: xmlp999999.tmp (999999 = files are numbered)  These files are stored in sub folders 0, 1, a1, a2, etc.

The files are very large and consuming disk space rapidly.  
Can these files be manually removed along with some of the sub folders?
