Which Files Does the Windows 7 System Maintenance Tool Delete?

In Microsoft Knowledgebase article KB978980 Microsoft states that when there are more than four broken shortcuts on the desktop, the System Maintenance troubleshooter automatically removes all broken shortcuts from the desktop. It implies that it only removes "broken" shortcuts.
Well! Look at this screenshot.

I have an extra folder on my DeskTop called DeskTop Extras that I put shortcuts into that I don't use all the time, maybe 3 months or longer. But when I want them they are in that folder, so I don't want them cleaned up & removed
