Quick Question!

Post by rachaelsimmer on Thu 19 Feb 2015, 23:11

Just a quick question, just wanted to clear up some space on my computer and found that the winrar files are huge and was just wondering if it's safe to delete them?

Hello rachaelsimmer and welcome,


Theoretically, you can delete those .RAR files straight away, but personally, I recommend you copy them to a safe place, if possible, like an external hard-drive, or a USB stick. If you have such a backup, you can re-install those games in the event you e.g. need to re-install your Windows system or format your computer. Without having to re-download them. 


After you backed up the stuff, you can delete the original files.

Hope this helps ! Smile
