    I have six Nandroid backups on my sd card and now my Hero is sorted out and working perfectly I only need two of those and I would like to delete the other four. Is there a problem with this? Of course I have my two backups backed up on my pc but I like to ask before I get on trouble.......

    Delete them, you'll be fine. I have had upwards of 10-12 and deleted them once I got the one I truly needed.

    As long as you have at least ONE backup saved on your PC you can do whatever you want with the others.

    As an example, I have my ORIGINAL backup saved on my laptop but haven't done one since. That being said, I know people who have saved EVERY one they have ever done.

    I think of it as saving documents... sure, I can save the report from High School, but 10 years later I have absolutely no use for it and can delete it. Only YOU can decide when you need/don't need them.

    Thanks so much for the info gentlemen. I just wasn't sure if they were linked together or something. I just got rid of the extras and have more space now.

    Thanks again....
