Safe to delete old version folders?

  • When looking at the Vivaldi folder, I sometimes see folders of multiple versions (see screenshot). Is it safe to manually delete all but the newest version folder? My hunch is yes, but I want to confirm with the Vivaldi authorities first just to be safe. Better safe than sorry! :)

    @bugmenot3: For rollback purposes, there may be SOME value in keeping the immediate prior version folder. But Vivaldi does not actually use those folders at all on an ongoing basis.

  • @bugmenot3 Well I thought it is safe too. But last month I deleted some older versions directories and I figured later that any of them had to be somehow connected to bookmarks. Anyway.. with directories I deleted also bookmarks created for almost 10 years since beginnings of Opera. And because opera link as kind of backup is not working anymore I lost it permanently.. So 1. backup! 2. backup. 3. delete old versions. 4. backup.
