Old Reaper Updates

Possibly a bit of a noob question, but I've just been trawling through my PC files with a view to having a bit of a tidy up and in my Downloads file there are all my previous Reaper Updates, each around 10 Mb. Should I keep them or is it safe to delete them all?

If you feel like you might one day want to install an old Reaper version, keep them I guess, but for the most part, you'll just be installing the latest version you have a license for and leaving it at that, so you can just delete the installer once you've installed the latest version.

Cockos seem to be quite good at not leading you down an evolutionary dead end so it's probably safe to delete old versions.

Maybe stick them all on a (very small) thumb drive. You never know, they may be worth a fortune in the future ;)

They probably won't but I've been wrong before.

Every Reaper version ever released can be found at

https://www.reaper.fm/download-old.php

although the links to the previous versions weren't totally obvious to me as they're in quite small text towards the top right. I'm tempted to download version 0.01 just for the fun of it.

Personally I'd keep the last download of each major version and maybe the newer ones from the last year or two in case something obscure has broken.
