    Question Cleanup, Dupes and Installers (Split).

    Hi! I wouldn't touch any of these with a ten foot pole. I've been there and bricked my PC. I learned my lesson. The space you gain isn't worth the gamble! Which of these would you delete. My answer NONE!

    Those are system files.

    Unless the duplicates are in personal data folders, leave them alone.

    None are System files, all but the last are just installers or part of unzipped installer packages.

    Check it out! I got rid of some personal dups by emptying One Drive, which I'm not using at the moment. Was just playing around with it. One drive does look promising for some important files and maybe Keys?? Probably can find a use for that free Cloud feature in my future! Think I'll start a new thread and get some suggestions on One Drive.

    You could probably do the same with the C:\Drivers\AMD Graphics Driver stuff but I'm a little unsure as this is W10, the *.dl_ dupes indicate that these are part of a compressed package so would have been decompressed and the resulting files moved to the final folder during install (to Program Files/Windows).

    Hi satrow. Thanks! I might give it a go, but it makes me a little nervous, and it will get me very little free space. About the AMD thing. I was getting some kind of errors after upgrading to W10. I let AMD check for up dated drivers and that's probably where all that AMD stuff came from. Here's the link I used!

    Thanks for your reply. Very helpful!!

    You certainly don't want to do an uninstall of the AMD components, just the pre-install stuff.

    Hi satrow! Yes sir! I really appreciate you! This is a learning experience. I thought I better stop when I saw that warning. I checked with the AMD auto detect and all is cool. Here's my C Drive. What do you think ? I keep a pretty clean and mean machine!Capture49.JPGCapture50.JPG
