Virtual Infastructure Server Host Update Files Filling Up my C: Drive

I am running VMware Virtual Infrastructure Client 2.5.0 build 64192 on a Windows 2003 Standard Edition Server; we have 4 ESX 3.5 hosts and 22 VMware Windows 2003 virtual machines.
My problem is that the host update files are filling up my hard drive; the files have names such as ESX350-200903201-UG and are located in:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\VMware\VMware Update Manager\Data\Host Update\ESX\ESX-3.5.0

These files are using up about 4 GB of disk space. My C: drive is 20 GB and I now have less than 1 GB of free space. I ran update manager and remediated all of my host about a month ago. Is there a mechanism is Virtual Center to clean these up or delete them, if not is there a way I can move / point them to another drive.

The location which you have mentioned here is the storage location for VMware Update Manager Downloads.

I suggest that you reinstall VMware Update Manager Module and this time instead of using the installation defaults, I suggest that you modify your update repository to be in D:/ or any other partition other than C:/
