I need to reclaim several gigs of space on my laptop, stop all the low space warnings and allow updates to go through. I just ran CCleaner's duplicate file finder app and the list is long but it starts off with many pages of these kind of MSN Edge duplicates.

So my question is whether I can safely delete many of these and which type? EdgeFiles.png

    Hi @Kathy O'Neill,

    Unfortunately, the EdgeCore folder is required for Microsoft Edge and WebView2, while Application folder is Microsoft Edge itself. They are actually not duplicates. I suggest you not remove the folders.
