Cleaning up /nexus-data/tmp

Hi all, I’m currently running Nexus as a docker container. The directory, inside the container, /data/tmp is using a large amount of data that appears to be just text files and I would like to clear them out or at least compress them. According to the documentation:

do not manipulate any files put into the temp directory, especially when repository manager is running

I would like to know, if I stop the container and remove/compress the text files older than 90 days, what kind of issues, if any, can I expect?

It is safe to clear out that directory when Nexus Repo is not running. I’ll have the documentation updated.
