hi all,

have elrise software's system workshop 2.3 on my machine. it allows me to scan for temporary files, backup files, and log files, among other items.

my question is, what is a good rule of thumb for deciding what to delete, and what to keep in each of these?
some files show as having attributes of "A" or "H" or "HA"

:whistling: thank you in advance for any suggestions.

I usually delete all log files unless i have some problems with the computer. I also delete all temp files. On backup files i would have to know what is being backed up. If the backups are in the workshop 2.3 i would look at the backup and decide then. It may be the program is backing up the same files and not deleting any of the older backups. I would think any backups older than 4 to 6 months ago you could delete. I look at the date they were created to decide.
