Deleting after upgrading

Now that I have downloaded and updated all my company files from Quickbooks for Mac 2016 to Quickbooks for Mac 2019, can I delete all of the QB 2016 files?

Yes.  Though I tend to make a backup of them, just in case. If you have multiple copies of the same company file (recorded at different dates for instance) then you may only want to keep the most recent one. 

 

I copy mine to iCloudDrive so they won't just be on my computer's hard drive.

Thank you!  I always back up to a thumb drive, so I just wanted to make sure that I could delete all the QB 2016 stuff that is hanging out on my computer.
