Multiple OS installed
 
In an effort to free up space on my PC, I would like to delete at least one installed OS from my PC. I currently have installed 4.2.180, 4.2.184, 4.5.52 and now 4.5.69.

At a minimum, can I delete the 4.2 OS's or any OS's I am not using with without messing up my current OS (4.5.69)?? I want to make sure before I start removing things.

Yes, you can do so. Please proceed.

JSanders 08-05-2008 10:45 PM

Please empty the trash when you are done.

ricpac 08-05-2008 10:48 PM

I can do that for Helmdawg.

Helmdawg, just let me know. :razz:

Helmdawg 08-05-2008 10:59 PM

hahahahha, thanks all!! I am happy to delete any 4.2's :razz:

You actually could delete them all but your current one if you wanted....but it might be a good idea to keep the one you know works the best for you at the time for a backup just in case

NickfromIL 08-05-2008 11:16 PM

If it makes you feel any better, I currently have 14 OS's on my PC :oops:

BCollins521 08-05-2008 11:18 PM

I think I have like 5....too lazy to check in the other room...on the laptop atm

When you remove them, be sure and use the Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel to uninstall them properly.

BCollins521 08-05-2008 11:22 PM

Oh yea that's true...if you don't you have to reinstall them and then uninstall them again lol..know that from experience

Thanks JC, exactly what I did. I also kept the last OS in case I need to roll back but don't think I will be looking back.. ;-)

@Nick: there are plenty of folks here that can help you take out the trash (all 14 OS's) :razz: JS and Ricpac have offered to help :smile:

NickfromIL 08-05-2008 11:38 PM

Now this is peer pressure. Fine, I'll remove the old ones. If they didn't release update after update so friggin quick it wouldn't be a problem, but I am in that "gotta have the latest" mindset.

BCollins521 08-05-2008 11:40 PM

Come on delete them you know you want to! Lol

NickfromIL 08-05-2008 11:41 PM

The only problem is I am trying to fill my new 3Tb external drive, just to see if I can

LOL

JSanders 08-05-2008 11:42 PM

Do I have add the vendor.cml file BACK in before deleting an OS on the PC? :?

Yes and make sure all the cods that you removed are in alphabetical order as well
