I've moved this from the poorly named Community Help forum (which is the forum for issues using the forums) to the Lightroom forum so that proper help can be offered.

I don't understand what you call "temporary import data folders". There is no such thing in LR 6.14.

I think you're refering to the space (named "previous import") that shows the photos you've just imported. This is not a folder and it doesn't contains photos either. It's a "Collection" that references the photos from your previous import. A collection occupies no disk space. The photos themself are where you imported them on disk. In this collection, LR is just showing you a small preview of these photos, wherever they are on disk.
