Home Pro 8 data folders


Recommended Posts

back ups of my latest works using HD Pro 2015 are saved automatically in the HD Pro 2015 data folder...and plan files/layouts are saved in the other folder with my client's name. my only concern is,.. is it will NOT affect the  program HD Pro 2015 if i delete this two folders? i'd like to delete these two folders (amounting almost 7GB)  to save disk space since i'm already using HD Pro 2015. thank you.

you haven't said what folders you are talking about .......

 

and where are all your OLD Plans stored ?  usually in the DATA Folder too .....  you don't want to back any of them up ?

 

just trying to be sure , I don't want to be blamed if you delete something you need....

I am not sure why there is a Pro8 folder in My Docs unless you installed Pro 8 in My Documents originally ,instead of in the Programs Folder but I see you are still on Vista , and things were done differently in that OS , it looks like everything is backed up to DVD according to you , so it should be fine to delete the folders. AFAIK nothing in 2015 is using anything in the old program or data folders it is a separate installation and could stay if you didn't need the space , if you want to be sure rename the two folders by adding the word OLD to the end of the name and wait a week to see if Pro 2015 tries to find the old folder, if not it , it is safe to delete.
