Thats an odd directory name, servicepackfiles\i386.

It's the archive of the previous SP, when Archive files is selected
%SystemRoot%\$NtServicePackUninstall$ folder you mean?

You can select not to archive or delete these but in case of problems
you can't uninstall the SP you just put on.

Or the %SystemRoot%\$NtUninstallXXXXXX\ directories?
Delete these, but you can't then uninstall patches in case of problems.

Maybe you mean, \Program Files\WindowsUpdate\ , where Windows update
service downloads files.

Maybe it's the temp directory, during a SP install it creates.
