Weird folder on webserver


We have a folder on our webserver that has uploaded content in it.
But this should not exist since we never used the webserver for our file storage.
(i tried to upload screenshots but i’m only able to upload one picture.
Storage setting:
System path: /opt/rocket

The specific folder:



the parent folder has a list of some of the channels on the server.

Not all channels are there. And i can’t seem to find a common denominator for these channels.

So does anybody know where this folder comes from? And would it be safe to remove it ? Cause it is 6gb and shoudlnt be on the webserver.
