OK it sounds like that could get me in trouble. But I need some space on my c drive and these 335 folders are taking up about a half gig of space. Can I safely move them to the d drive?

It won't get you in trouble as long as the updates are a few days old and you've successfully rebooted several times after installing.

Delete them if they're more than 3 days old.

How large is your HDD and how much free space do you have? Are you storing your data on C: or on a data folder(s) on D:? If on C:, moving the data is a good idea too.
