I am using Atom v1.7.2 on Windows 8.1. I just noticed I also have v1.6.2 and v1.7.1 in my %APPDATA%\Local\atom folder. When I first started using Atom on this computer, it was v1.6.0 and automatic updates have handled the rest. All three folders take approximately 330MB each, so it isn’t just left over config data.
Why are these previous versions still hanging around? Can I delete them manually to reclaim the diskspace without breaking the current version?
