enter image description here


Juniper built a specific command for cleaning up files.

request system storage cleanup and request system storage cleanup dry-run

The documentation is here, but basically it's for doing exactly what you want - deleting unnecessary files. I tend to just use dry-run and manually delete a handful if I'm even slightly concerned about it. While it's a bit liberal, it will never delete anything critical to the system.

You can safely delete that file. Someone most likely left it there by mistake after a software upgrade.
