Can I delete C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\Download

Hi ,
I have noticed that folder C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\Download used 1G
and keep increasing. I have turn off the auto update service and set to use
WSUS. why it still keeps increasing? Can I delete it?

Also there is lots of $NTunisntallKB91333 on c:\windows, Can I remove it to
other driver and just move it back if I want to uninstall it?

Thanks for you kind considerate.

Yes you can delete it from time to time. It must have been downloading off
your WSUS. Not sure about it.

Yes you can move them else where and if you need to uninstall the patches,
then move it back to C:\Windows and do the installation.
