LR Backups
 
I have a lot of LR backups on my hard drive and am thinking of deleting all but the most recent. Is that a good idea or not?

Don't see why not. You are the boss..........*chr

You can delete directories from within Lightroom. Otherwise you get the directory name but no photos. They can be synchronised in Library mode.

I get the same problem. My picture folder fills up, they need sorting and saving to the external drive.

Might have misunderstood you. The backup files don't seem to take up a lot of space. Presumably they would be replaced when you next leave LR. Frequency of that can be set.

I periodically delete older back-ups t save space and haven't had any problems so far.
That could be tempting fate!!!!

I do likewise - keeping only the last 2 or 3 catalog backups. Each of my catalog backups is currently ~3.6GB. I regard these backups as protection against catalog corruption/loss on the PC I use for running Lightroom and I haven't thought of a reason why I might wish to revert to anything other than the latest (or possible the most previous state of the catalog).
