I have MySql 5.5 installed on 2008R2 x64 server and notice that installation folder size is more that 500MB. In a bin folder almost every exe contains .pdb file. Is it possible to delete those files?

Update I have used installer Change and marked Debug binaries and Debug Symbols to be not installed.

Yes. Those are debugging symbols, and are only really necessary if you wish to produce some type of debug information from MySQL.
