Is it Ok to delete the files and folders from \CA\DSM\PatchManagement\downloads ?
ITCM 12.9,14.0,14.0 SP1
There is no need to keep the downloaded files and they can be deleted every week or so..
You can also configure this delete task in Patch Manager Administration tab --> Data Pruning option ( As shown in below screenshot. )
