    I accidentally installed TomTom Home instead of MyDrive after a clean Windows install. I then uninstalled Home after reinstalling MyDrive but have found several subfolders named HOME in the TomTom library. e.g. under C:/Users/username/AppData/Local/TomTom. There are 2 folders named HOME and HOME3.
    Are these safe to delete?

    Leaving the AppData/Local/TomTom/HOME folder isn't going to bother anything. All it contains is some profile data that was set up by Home for devices you don't own. That said, you can feel free to delete it. Wouldn't want to comment on others unless I knew specifically which and where.

    HOME are the folders for the older devices, like NAV2.
    HOME3 is where your current version of MyDrive Connect resides.
    If you accidentally delete the latter, just download and install again.
