Remove Backups after upgrade?

The updater makes backups of older versions and places them in my data folder. The folder is updater-uniquecode. Within this folder are 2 sub folders - downloads and backups.

Once I’m happy with the new version, is it ok to remove the sub folders - downloads and backups from the updater-uniquecode folder?

Thank you.
