Default office 2003 hidden files

office 2003 proffessional edition copies setup files inside a hidden folder inside a drive other than your installation drive. it never asked where i wanted to put these files.

it asks if i would like to delete this at the very end of office installation. frontpage 2003 also does this, but gives no warning or option to delete.

example: i choose to install office 2003 on

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11

it will copy files to hard disk inside a hidden folder onto D, E, or F. these files are used to repair office or reinstall it i beleive. even if i choose to delete these files it still leaves a few files on this hidden folder.

my question is how can i move these files over to the same installation drive ( C: ) and still have office use them or if i delete this folder and all of its contents will it mess anything up?
