    Those are memory dump files resulting from SS crashes. Those should be presented to Broadcom support in the event of an issue, to troubleshoot the problem. If you don't ned the problem traced, you can delete those.

    Yes, that is correct.
    An MDMP file is a compressed data file created by Windows after a program error or crash. It contains data "dumped" from the program's memory space, which includes information about the error that can be used for debugging.

    The incident_data files can also be deleted. These get created when Support requests further troubleshooting data. Since these files are all older, they are no longer relevant by this time, so can be deleted.
