Do you Delete ... ?

Recommended Posts

Stuff left by a P3d install under:

C:\ProgramData\Package Cache

?

There are a few folders, with the scenery, cliente and content installers, together with MS installers. A total of 9,91 GB in my Win 10 system disk...

Is it worth keeping it there ?

I personally am not a fan of deleting anything. If I really need the room, what I have done in the past is to change the name of the directory, like ProgramData\obsolete package cache.........................    Then I wait a couple of months to watch for any train wrecks. If none, then I delete. USB drives are so cheap today, if in doubt place it on a USB drive, then you can always reload it if need be.

Jcomm,

I think those are just backup MS installers in case you need to "repair" your installation. I might be wrong on that. I'm not sure if they are needed for uninstalling. Could be wrong on that as well.

Thx guys,

they're there probably only as a way to repair most surely. Just backed it up to na external disk, and erased from C: with no problem.
