    hmm...those files are created by a program callled chkdsk.exe. This will run during boot time if your system is not shutdown properly. It will scan your disk and look for logical errors and any data that is not marked as belonging to any file. Those .chk files are created when files are left open because of improper or suddent shutdown.
    Its safe to delete them... :)
