I have found approximately two hundred files with sizes ranging from 4KB to 40KB in a cache folder. They were created in 2010 and 2011 on two days.
The file extension is .TN for all except two the have .ARC extension. I have found that the .ARC extension is connected to Norton.
Can I safely assume these were back up files and remove them from the system?

Running OS X EL capitan V 10.11.5 My post was in 2014 and I have forgotten how I uncovered these files of if they still exist. Given the lack of tools on the Apple systems I do not know if I can find them again.
