I'm using SageMath 8.2 on a Windows 10 Native with Jupyter Notebook.

I uninstalled SageMath 8.2 and installed SageMath 8.3. in a different folder. There is still a lot of garbage left in the SageMath 8.2 folder, can I delete it?

Yes, you can delete the "garbage". I am quite sure deleting wouldn't cause any loss, as long as you have successfully download Sagemath 8.3. Anyway, I think your Windows version is good enough for Sage to work efficiently, perhaps? :)

You should be able to just delete it. I don't know what garbage was left behind, but certainly if you put any files in there that weren't created by the installer itself then they will linger.

To be clear: This is by intent. If files were added that aren't known about by the installer, the uninstaller can't make any guesses as to whether or not any of those files are important. Although users should not be putting important files anywhere in there, if they did for some reason we'd rather not delete anything that the uninstaller doesn't know about, and let the user decide (but if you're not aware of anything you might have put there then the answer is just to go ahead and delete it).
