Uninstalling previous MPLab X versions

I'm replacing my desktop with a new computer.  I'm cleaning up my system as best I can.  I did have 9 previous versions of MPLab X, the XC8 compiler and the XC16 compilers.
I have MPLab X v4.10 now.  How many previous versions should I keep?
Thank you

    Depending on your needs, even only one could be all you need.
    There is no need of having installed versions you won't use. I usually keep 2 latest versions of MPLAB X (after I download a new released version) and once I'm comfortable with the new version, I then uninstall the old one.
    You can always install an older version when needed. 
    For compilers you can also keep the old ones depending on the kind of projects you are working on, compatibility with your old projects, plib support, etc.
