Safe delete docker tmp folder

I had to cancel a docker build 2 times during “uploading context” phase.
I figure out what I was doing wrong, but know I have some huge files in docker tmp folder.

Can I safely delete these folders? What about deleting the whole “/var/lib/docker/tmp” folder?

    It is safe to delete tmp folder.

    But you will need to restart docker service afterwards

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
