I have several files (MS Word specifically) starting with a tilde i.e. ~WR0007.bak amongst others. How safe is it to delete files beginning with a tilde?

They're temporary Office files - delete when you have closed any office apps if Office hasn't done it itself

I thought this might be the case.
Thanks
