I noticed that after the results are done and returned I still have a lot of data files in the project directory all ending with ....tar.manual.gz

Are they needed for future work or can they be deleted.
And if they can be deleted, the project should do this automaticly.

BOINC stores some files about the job on your system so that, if any of it is required in the future, it requires a shorter download time.
Data files that BOINC considers "sticky" will remain in volunteer devices until no more jobs use them, after which they are deleted automatically.
