...is generally to save those important .exe installer files to a separate CD..That way, I don't have to hunt them down again to reinstall the program should the hard drive take a turn for the worse.
In addition, I keep backup installers (.exe) files of my updated drivers..Once again, it's easier than hunting them down again.
Hope this helps.
Happy New Year! Quick (and probably painfully simple) question:
* I download a software program as a .exe file.
* I install the software.
* I'm left with a .exe file.
Question: Can I delete it? BEcause my hard drive is loaded with large .exe files AND the programs they installed. I'd love to clear out megs and megs of HD space by deleting them but don't want to negatively affect the programs they delivered.
Can I safely delete these .exe files?
Thanks in advance for your info.
