Deleting old backup files

Is it safe/prudent to delete old copies of my Quicken backup files? If
so, how far back do I need to keep copies of the backup files? I need
to clean up some drive space, and I have old backup files dating back
almost two years. Do I need any of these that are older than, say 30
days?
Thanks, Gordon

I keep mine about a month - or until I get the monthly statements from all my accounts and make sure everythng reconciles.

Thanks, this was what I was looking for. I have used MS Money for years, and am not fully adapted to Quicken. I'll try this backup copies limit and see if it will do what I want.

When I want to free up space, I just burn the ones I want to delete to a CD.
