Default Local Settings/Temp folder important?

was doing a defrag of my system and found the majority of my fragments in my Local Settings/Temp folder. Can I delete the contents of this folder without doing any harm to my system. I know that sometimes temporary file folders can be deleted but I wanted to check on this one. My defragger was unable to fix these fragments.

That is just temporarily used files. It's safe to delete the contents of the folder, but not the folder.

sorry to doublepost, but still looking for a confirmation between the two above answers to my post.
