Padshop and Retrologue location

After installing Cubase 7 I realised Padshop adn Retrologue sit within thei own VSTplugins folder under the main Steinberg folder. However, I prefer to use the VSTpluging folder created within the Cubase 7 folder.

Is it ok to move Padshop and Retrologue into the other folder under Cubase 7 without risk of damaging them?

I just loaded C7 for trial and it left it alone, it works fine. As to doing what you are wanting to do, just copy and paste, and then hide or move the synths from where they are now. You will find out soon enough if it will work.
