...how it got there
...it was during an update......
The windows installer put it there while installing an update. The installer should have removed the folder after it was no longer needed. The installer might have tried to do this and failed. If you have rebooted and the folder is still there, just delete it.

The windows installed automatically picks the drive with the most free space for such temp files.
