There are two folders (R2017b and SupportPackages) in the following path: C:\Users\<MyName>\Downloads\MathWorks. And the size of "R2017b" are 3.61 GB, which consumes too much of disk space. I wonder what is the function of "C:\Users\<MyName>\Downloads\MathWorks\R2017b" and Can I delete it to free disk space. Thanks a lot.

There is an extremely cheap method to test this: rename the folders and see, if everything is working fine.
This folders contains the installation files. You can download them again on demand. Storing them on a DVD or USB stick is cheap also.
