    So am evaluating things to delete from my macbook pro (Yosemite) to free up some disk space. I see a folder iWork 09, which contains Pages, Numbers, and Keynote. Migrated from when I bought them years ago. Likewise there is an iMovie folder.

    I also see in my Applications folder the new versions of Pages, iMovie, etc. Is there any reason not to delete the old iWork and iMovie 9 stuff?

    TIA....

    You can keep them for nostalgic reasons I suppose. :p

    It might be that the older iWork versions have some more features, but if you're not using them anyway, you don't need them. It could also help if you have some old iWork files left. I've heard that file compatibility is not that great for these types of files, so you could keep the old version around just to open these files without breaking them.

    Check whether the newest version will open your oldest Docs before trashing the old Apps.
    Better safe than sorry as Apple has been known to orphan document formats.

    Keep the folder. The older version has more functions than the new one. Plus, you will have problems with older version documents, if you keep only the new version.
