Windows 7: Can I safely delete these from my 2nd internal HD?

Can I safely delete these from my 2nd internal HD?

The following folder has appeared on my secondary internal HD, used only for Acronis back-ups. It says it was modified last Nov. 11. I am guessing that it is some sort of temp folder; it's under 3 MB. Can I safely delete it?

The second item is a single dll file also sitting on the drive, not in a folder: gdiplus.dll, modified last Sept., 1661 KB. Since this is presumably a Windows file, am I correct in guessing that there is one on my C drive and that this is a leftover artifact of some process, perhaps when I moved files from my old computer to this one early this year? Should I try putting it somewhere else?

Those folders are used for temporary update data, first check if there are any pending updates and if not you can safely delete them
