Is it safe to delete subfolders of VMwareDnD, or is there a better way to get rid of them?

I'm running a trial of Fusion 7.1.1 on an iMac running Mavericks. I've loaded Windows 8.1 and so far I am quite happy with the product except for one thing: When I copy from the Mac side and paste into the VM it works, but there is full copy also kept in my temp files.

For example in the folder:  "C:\Users\Name\AppData\Local\Temp\vmware-Name\VMwareDnD\860697c5" there is a 10G+ copy of file folders I copied to my desktop.  From what I read, rebooting the system should take care of it, but it doesn't.  CCleaner won't delete them, and I'm nervous about manually deleting them and messing something up....

Grateful for any advice.

Welcome to the Community,

to me this looks like a leftover from an unsuccessful cleanup (or a flaw in the application) and can be deleted. If you are unsure, simply rename or move the folder, and - if everything remains working as expected - delete the moved folder at a later time.
