You should delete both. The game data will just automatically re-install from the disc when you start the game, so you don't have to worry about anything provided you delete the right two things. It doesn't take long, maybe ~5 mintues at worst, to reinstall the game data. The patch will vary depending on your internet speed.

No, DO NOT delete your game saves. This has been covered in the directions on previous pages.

There are two folders that keep Skyrim data under the "GAME" category on the XMB that people are confusing...

    [*]Game Data Utility
    [*]Saved Data Utility (PS3)
    [/list]"Saved Data Utility" contains your game saves (profile data, characters, etc.); you do NOT touch anything in this folder. "Game Data Utility" is where you need to look. It contains two files: "Skyrim" (file installed off the disc the first time you play) and "Skyrim Update" (patches downloaded from the internet). Neither of these are related to your game saves, and need to be deleted for this fix to work.
