can we delete them?

Environment

Release : 17.3

Component : SDM - Install/Upgrade/Configuration

Resolution

Files under REPLACED folder are for un-installation purpose so instead of deleting them, we recommend move them to a portable disk like a USB...in case you need to un-install you can drop them back from portable disk.

For files in SDM temp folder, they are left over from installation and you can delete them.
