Hello everyone,
I was checking my disk space usage on my main PC, and discovered nearly 7Gb of redundant TomTom files in C:\Users\(username)\Documents\TomTom\HOME\Download.
This includes 26 versions of the map files (6.5 Gb), 44 versions of safetycamera files, and 34 versions of the zipcode files.
  • Is it safe to delete the older versions and keep the latest?

Many thanks

Yes, you can delete older versions of map and zipcode files.

Good question, but you should ask TomTom.
This is a peer-to-peer help forum with no influence of what TomTom is doing.

I always keep the current and previous versions so I can revert if there is a problem with the latest download.
