    Generally yes.

    In some cases one or two older versions are retained. Not dozens.

    No, it's often not alright. Depends upon the directory ("folder") that you envision eviscerating.

    The purpose is usually to provide a fallback in case of a broken upgrade. So your system and key applications still work.

    Removing packages is among the most laborious and least efficient ways to reclaim storage space. Lots of work to reclaim very little space. You could spend a whole day reclaiming less than the space occupied by a single movie.

    If you want to see what is taking up space on the install, use this command in the terminal:
    Code:
    df -hT -x squashfs -x tmpfs -x devtmpfs
