Deleting data in C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\ folder

Hi,
We have a dev server running with multiple NAV/BC environments on. We have a constant struggle with enough disk space on the server.

When we work on a customer we can take home a new copy of database, and we have NAV NST/Service ready to be started.
But we see that in this folder on the server, we have a lot of folders and data: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\<Serviceversion>\<Servicename>

We are thinking about setting up a routine that automatically deletes subfolders in this folder once a month or so. It seems that NAV/BC creates folder again upon startup, if it is not all ready present.

Would that be an ok way to go in a dev environment?
Would there be a way to delete folders attached to services that has not been started in a given period of time?

Thanks

    In dev it’s ok to delete.
    But the reason it’s being generated is, that its a complile of all running Code, used to run the servicetier.
    .NET cant run on Code inside the database.
