How to delete a Software Update Group in SCCM 2012?

I am relatively new to SCCM 2012, although I have successfully updated our company laptops to almost current Patch levels. This month I inadvertantly forgot\missed to create a folder name for the Dec 2013 Patches, and now I have 110 patch files downloaded in the root of SoftwareUpdates instead of neatly in a folder.
Although the group itself is fine, test deployments are successful, and it's actually ready to deploy, I'd like to clean up the folder situation.
I assume I should delete the Software Update Group following this order:
1) Delete deployments (via Deployment tab in Software Update Groups)
2) Delete the Software Update Group (right click, delete)

Will this result in the automatic removal of the content on my primary site server, and my secondary site server (also a DP) too? Or will I need to manually delete the patch files?

Since I cannot see a way to repoint the existing SUP to a new content location, my thought is to delete the existing SUP and recreate a new one, this time properly adding a folder.

Thanks in advance for any advice or recommendations.

I would remove the Updates from DP, then remove deployment and then the Software Update Group.
If they still exists on the File Share, you can remove them manually

Took me a little while to figure out how to delete from the DP (remove from content location in the Deployment Package), and it makes sense. I'll try it tomorrow.
