    When I did the automatic upgrade of WordPress it created a folders called upgrade>wordpress-3.tmp>wordpress (and then all the word press files in there)
    My site isn’t structured this way it has all the files in the root. Does the upgrade override my old files?

    The upgrade process will move files to there before then overwriting your existing WordPress core files. This is how it works for all sites.

    Well I upgraded another one of my sites and looked at the files on the server and it didn’t have the files I listed above from the upgrade. Does it usually create those folders and files and then delete them from the server?

    Yes.

    Is there a reason it doesn’t always delete these temp files and folder?

    Yes – possibly becuase of a server configuration or permissions issue.
