Question Multiple OS installed

Please Login to Remove!

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.

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

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

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) JS and Ricpac have offered to help

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.
