    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.
