Can I delete old compressed files?

Question

I am wondering if I can delete Old Compressed files>

I need extra space and I really don't want to buy another hard drive as I already have 2.

If I can't delete them how can move them to my other hard drive?

Yes you can delete old compressed files as you will not need them unless you are planning to uninstall your current OS. All those old files are previous configurations from an old OS so you can go back to it easier. So with that said you can delete them if you don’t plan on going back to your old OS. I hope that helps!
