If you’re using  Chrome you should know this – whenever Chrome installs a newer version through its updater it leaves behind the older one in AppData folder, the case where there might be so many outdated Chrome versions left in Chrome’s installed directory unless you installed Chrome freshly after reinstall of Windows, these older versions can occupy some space. If you’re concerned about disk space, instead of removing them manually you can use freeware portable OldChromeRemover to delete them.
