This is the Windows swap file. You should not delete it.

You can delete it but Windows will recreate it.

See this site for advice on how to control its size:-

I think it covers everything you need to know.

1. Deleting WIN386.SWP File?

       A supposed "computer genius" at work told me (and he works
on them, so I don't know whether to believe him or not!) that I could
delete the WIN386.SWP file from my computer, and that the only
thing that would happen was that I'd have to re-enter some info when
the system booted up again.

      It seems to be taking up an awful lot of space, and I wanted to
set the parameters lower a bit. Is this doeable, or will this majorly
F$&% things up, and I'd have to reload all my programs?

     A newbie wanting to know, before I take a self-proclaimed
experts advice! :-)
