System drive on my PC is running low after most recent upgrade to Java
6.00
I noticed that under Java folder there is several sub folders with
earlier versions
jre1.5.0_04 to jre1.6.0_01, 60MB each.
I hope I can delete the earlier updates without harm to my system.

You should uninstall not delete.

Thanks,
How come they cumulate this way?
Do I need to do this after every update?

Is it possible redirect Java folder to a different location, bigger
drive?

Software developers often want to have multiple Java versions on their
PC for build and test purposes.

Yes.

If you do a manual install you can specify where it goes.

I don't know about automatic updates.
