Idx files


I have just found over 100 idx files in my music folder, all dated December 15th 2003. could some one please tell me:

1, what they are,

2, how they got there,

3, should I leave them or delete them and

4, if I should delete, how? Because I tried to delete 1 and it made a copy.

The idx files located on your computer are actually index files that are probably being used by your music program to index your music files, it you decide to delete them, the program may recreate them when you run the program again These idx files are create to better and fast find or index your files for better access.
