Why is there a Relocated Items Folder on your desktop?
Some files may couldn't be moved to their new locations, and may be not compatible with macOS security settings during the update process. Then MacOS will create a new folder to relocate these files that couldn't be handled by the update. This will guarantee that all your files are not damaged. So don't worry too much about the new Relocated Items Folder.
Should you hang on to this folder?
When you see the Relocated Items Folder, don't rush to delete it. You should open it to check the content of the folder and see if there are some important files, such as photos and other useful files. If there are some important files, you should keep this fold. If there are not, you can delete this folder.
