    So I upgraded to Windows 10, and using clean up I got rid of the others folders/files. But this folder is still there?
    Is ok to delete it now?

    Same with me. I do not want to upgrade to windows 10 so I delete that folder. I am wondering that does windows 8.1 automatically download upgrade folders again ?
