Hello Forum: I found this directory on my laptop's hard drive called: ".swt"

I would like to delete it, if it is safe to do so. So I started searching around and found the link below:


Is anyone able to add any new information about deleting (or why not to delete this directory)? Thanks for your kind feed back.

Standard Widget Toolkit appears to be for use with the Java platform.
If you have software which depends on Java you may need it.
