Hi, Axxll -- this is nothing new, it was created when you used "archive and install" previously with the OSX installer. We just copied it!
Basically, that's the "archive" part of the "archive and install". The OSX installer puts the old operating system in this folder. You can safely delete it!

Yes, you'll find a parent folder called "Previous Systems" and then different archives in there depending on the number of times you've archived and installed. The first will be "Previous Systems 1", the 2nd "Previous Systems 2", etc.
