    It's likely, given the name and size of the directory, that it's merely the source of the original OS install. I had something similar with a server of mine.

    Perhaps you could check with whoever installed the OS - they'd be able to suggest if the directory is merely where the OS installer was kept and whether it can be safely removed.

    That's the location of the Linux kernel source.
