Downloading multiple versions of nero. Should I?

I have several versions of nero still on my computer. Before I download the newest platinum version, should I remove the older versions? I want to download 2018. Im on win10.

  • Hi Kenneth-

    You don't have to uninstall them but, whether or not to do that depends on the features you need. For instance, if you want to play blu--ray discs or edit high definition audio such as DTS, you would want to keep v2015 or earlier. If you use BackItUp and you want all the options that were available in Backitup in v12 and earlier, you would want to keep one of those versions. If you add subtitles to video, you would want to keep v10 or earlier. Those are examples that come to mind immediately.

  • Thank you. I was also concerned with overlapping of the versions and if I decide to remove earlier versions, will it effect newer versions. I can see this becoming a lot of information to store on a computer. If each new version would do what the previous versions would do, it would simplify the answer. Maybe Nero can identify what the difference is between each version. I have Nero several years worth but dont use it enough to know. Thank you again.

  • Removing earlier versions shouldn't affect later versions. If you have v7, v8 or v9, you would uninstall using the Nero General Clean Tool, not Control Panel. However, if you had two or three of those versions installed, it would probably remove all of them. Of course, you could download and reinstall.

    There used to be comparison charts which showed general differences in features between two or more versions. However, those didn't show the technical changes. If there's something you're concerned about, you can ask me since I have all versions from v8 through v2018 installed plus I've been working with all of them here in the forum for over 9 years.
