Deleting Contents of LiveUpdate Downloads Folder

Running Windows 2003 server, Backup Exec 11d 7170:
 
Is it safe to delete the contents of the C:\Docs & Sets\All Users\App Data\Symantec\LiveUpdate\Downloads folder?

How about  "\Symantec \Cached\ Install" ?
 
Any advice would be appreciated!  Thanks!!!

Yes it is safe to delete the contents of  C:\Docs & Sets\All Users\App Data\Symantec\LiveUpdate\Downloads folder
But if I may ask for what reason are you deleting the files as it is usually required for troubleshooting issues with running LU

imthecreator:  I had a question about the same folders.  

The reason I need to delete them is because they are taking up a valuable 200+ MB of disk space on my OS partition.

If the folders/files are left over from an install and not needed anymore, I need to get rid of them to free up this disk space.  If the files are required for normal usage, then I'll delete somewhere else to free up space.

Thanks,

Rick
