    Even permanently... just don't lose your first pre-modding nand backup (which you should have backed up to your PC, at least, immediately anyway)

    Everything else is replaceable

    Between insane and insecure
    That folder literally does nothing more than provide a cleaner SD card. It's made so the files related to hourglass9/decrypt9 have a place to dump all of their files into an easy to find location.
    It has no effect on your hacks beyond clutter control for two payloads, so you really don't need to worry about deleting it.
    If you dumped Sun/Moon into that folder, just delete or move the files off the SD card. Once they are installed, you don't need to keep the CIA(s) around anymore
