    11 folders with names like app, bin framework, lib.....It looks like a system update. But (as far as I can tell) I don't have one waiting '

    Hi Shlomog!

    Reading your posts, I'd advise against deleting them until I know more. Like if you're rooted, and this directory structure somehow got copied off the root, and/or what tool/how you're seeing this. Sometimes Android devices have aliases in the file system that point to somewhere else. If you're not out of disc storage space, and not having problems, I'd not be in a hurry to delete these files. From the limited information I have available right now, I wouldn't advise anyone to just go ahead and delete that many files. Well... maybe my sister, but that's another story!

    I tend to agree. If you are rooted with custom recovery you could make a nandroid backup then delete the files and see what happens but you are risking a reflash.
    General rule... If you do not know what it is leave it alone. I guess what I find weird is that you have a folder called system in your download folder....that is not normal. If you are having any issues, low space, misbehaving maybe a factory reset will be in order.
