Last good is a backup folder, its very purpose is defeated if you tamper with its content.
I would advise you to be very careful with deleting so-called duplicate files; many programs find & report duplicate files because they're almost alike.
If you are worried about disc space, one good program to try out is EasyCleaner v.2 (freeware). It includes many great cleaner tools, like registry, unecessary files, mru, history, TIF (temporary internet files). It also includes a duplicate file tool, though I never had the courage to use it, for above stated reason.

The Lastgood folder is updated regularly, as this is what will be used when something goes wrong, and you are asked if you want to boot to last known good configuration.
Personally, rather than risk upsetting the whole installation, I would add another H/D if I were short of space.
