Can I delete a Folder in my content without affecting the data that in the folder that was passed to another user of AGOL ? In agol content I have a folder that I was made the owner of temporarily and would now like to delete the folder - as I do not have ownership of the project the folder belongs to.

If I delete the folder from My Content, what happens to the data? Is the folder and data simply deleted from my profile or If I delete it am I deleting the data globally?

The folder has webapps, webmaps, tiling and feature services and other content. I would like to delete the entire folder.

If you have already transferred the data to another user and don't need the data or the folder that you are wanting to delete, I would just delete it.  If you get an error about permissions or ownership, you will have to take care of that separately.  

Here is a link with information about managing content in AGOL:
