Under the spool folder is a folder called Printers. This is the folder where all spooled print jobs go. Once the job prints they are supposed to be deleted automatically (assuming System has rights to the folder which it does by default). Anything in this folder can be deleted without issue as long as no one is trying to print at the time. If someone is trying to print and the file gets deleted, it won't print.

Hope this hepls.
