    Can I delete this WINBACKUP file

    Hi, I just noticed this morning that in my Documents folder, a new file appears called "fa.winbackup" and it's almost 1 GB and the file type is WINBACKUP.

    I think it was created when I upgraded my Suitcase Fusion app (font managements) and it created a backup of the font archive. I'm going based on the timestamp.

    Is it safe to delete this file now?

    Backup your files, delete that user is all I can recommend.
    Does it say anything like, "You need permission from Trusted Installer to make changes to this file" or something?
