    I would keep them as a backup on your PC in case your emunand bricked for some reason.

    Give them to me :P.

    Agree with WiiUBricker, there are sometimes where you can brick your emunand, and you need to format it again, so imagine all the pain to re-donload your stuff again...

    EmuNAND could brick if you install a faulty CIA, but playing them and deleting them is fine, and won't brick your system.
