Do I need these large tar files in my ShopSite directories?
There are tar files in my ShopSite directories (bo, sb, data, and output) that are rather large and they're taking up valuable space on the server. Can these be deleted? The filename is something like: 'data.v3.4.1.tar'

These files are created when you upgrade your ShopSite software. This is how the filenames are formatted:
So the above example file, data.v3.4.1.tar is a backup of the data directory from when you upgraded to 3.4.1.
If your site has worked fine since the upgrade, it's probably all right to delete these files. Before doing that, test every module of ShopSite: add a product, a page, update the site, place a test order, etc. Also, it would probably be a good idea to download the file to your PC, just in case.
