 I have a folder like that on my hard drive with a date close to yours.  It's part of .NET.  Mine's 24 MB which is a trivial amount of space these days, so I just leave it there, even though I suspect I could probably delete it if I were a really serious risk taker.  Personally I figure if it's not broken, don't fix it.

Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:
