    I was emptying my external drive to start some new backups and I noticed that there was a msdia.dll in the directory of the external drive. How did it get there and should I delete it? Or is it OK there? I'ts a MS Debug Information Accessor. dll, whatever it does or is.

    Unless this is a directory with software in it, it should be safe to delete it. There is no explainable reason as to why it is there given the information provided.
