I just recently upgraded from PS 5.5 to PS CS, purchasing the ‘Upgrade Version.’ I expected to have a large amount of the 5.5 deleted, and of course some files might be moved to the CS Folders. In looking at the directories now under ‘Program Files,’ it appears that all of PS 5.5 is still present and occupying 87.6 MB of disk space. Has anyone used the ‘Uninstall’ utility of a prior version of PS after doing an upgrade and not suffered from loss of essential application files? Data files and customization files that PS CS are not an issue. Although I can live with the old files there, it would be nice to reclaim the space for other uses. Ron

You can remove the old installation, it is not used by CS except at installation. Should you need to re-install CS without your old version being present you will need the 5.5 CD and serial number to allow the CS install to proceed.
