That depends on whether there's anything important in there...it varies from system to system. If there's nothing in there then you might as well just leave it blank as it's only taking up the 4KB used by the inode. If it has stuff in it then you'd better leave it as that stuff might be needed by something. As with most things, there's probably a reason for it's existence.
my dilemma is that it is taking up (mysteriously) 1.3 GB of precious disk space... I dont recognize anything in the directory (lots of subfolders). I may delete it to see what happens... restore it from backup if things go wrong/arnt working.
