: : Kermit 95 1.1.14 is now available as a patch to Kermit 95 for Windows 95,
: As I wait for my patch download to complete, I did a Zip of the K95
: directory, which makes me wonder how much of this I should delete.
: Obviously the *.rtp files from all of the old patches could go away, and
: most of the *.exe archives of the patches.
: I recall a problem with "temp" files not going away, but I forget the
: extensions. I have 147 files in the K95 tree, occupying 14.8MB.
Well, there is the backup directory, which lets you back off from the most
recent patch, but it's always a good idea to hang on to that one for a week
or so after a new release in case something bad turns up.
The problem with non-vanishing temporary files was fixed in 1.1.12.
Theoretically, whatever you find in your TEMP directories (those pointed to
by your TMP and/or TEMP environment variables) can go. Kermit's temporary
files (those created by the Dialer itself) generally have long cryptic names,
and if you still have any of them, the dates should be quite passe.
: Some of the files, like the extra modems and whatnot, could be compressed
: or deleted, but I am more interested in tossing the stuff that really
: needn't be there, generically.
: Some of the things, like "patch.exe" could have been removed by the upgrade
: that added patchdos.exe, although that is only 60k, as opposed to the 1MB+
: files for each of the patch levels.
You can actually toss all the old patch remnants except the most recent
backup; if necessary you can always re-download old patches from the Kermit
