I changed in the configurationsettings for ASP.NET so the connection string
element below was saved in my web.config file

I just want to make it clear to me what this element <remove
name="LocalSqlServer" /> that exist in the beginning of the
connectionstrings element actually mean.

My first question is:
I mean that what it say is that forget everytning what is said from the
connectionstring named
LocalSqlServer. Is that correct understood ?

My second question is: If I remove this element <remove
name="LocalSqlServer" />
from my connectionstrings element can that cause problem in any way or is it
100% save to remove it.
If not 100% save can you say anything what might happen

<remove name="LocalSqlServer" />
<add name="LocalSqlServer" connectionString="data
Security=SSPI;AttachDBFilename=|DataDirectory|aspn etdb.mdf;"
providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />

By default, the machine.config will have the "LocalSqlServer" with some default connection string which gets loaded everytime when your application is running. If you want to use the same name "LocalSqlServer" to define your own connectionstring, you need to remove the entry added by machine.config as duplicate entry is not allowed in connection strings and for that purpose you have to use <remove name="LocalSqlServer"> in your web.config.
