Is it important or useful to keep old CD-ROMs or DVDs that have been replaced by new versions? For example, I have the Accordance Primary 8 DVD, both Primary 8 (8.0.1) and Primary 8.1. And I have the Anchor Yale Bible Dictionary on CD-ROM version 2 and The Anchor Bible Dictionary on CD-ROM Release 4. And a number of Accordance 7 CDs.

As long as you have upgraded there is no need to keep old disks of the same series. The only exception is if you want to use old modules that are no longer available, for example, to compare the older MT/LXX with the new MT-LXX Parallel, and you think you might need to reinstall the old ones again. Another example is the NIDNTT or NIDOTTE CD-ROMs that included the NIV-G/K modules.

Thank you. I'll pay close attention to the kind of exceptions you note.
