I delete mine on a fairly regular basis, and it's also good to empty it if
you are having install/uninstall issues. I'd wait for someone else to speak
up first before going ahead though. Just speaking from my personal
experience...:-)

One of the things that I do is to move My Documents to the D: drive. Right
click the My Documents Icon, then click Properties. Then click the Move
button. Navigate to the D: drive and create a folder( I labeled it My
Documents), name it and click ok. It should ask you if you'd like to move
your documents and click yes.

As far as moving the actual install of the programs to the D: drive instead
of the default location, that's beyond me at the moment and I'm sure someone
will help you.
