Java updates on my PC

    System drive on my PC is running low after most recent upgrade to Java
    6.00
    I noticed that under Java folder there is several sub folders with
    earlier versions
    jre1.5.0_04 to jre1.6.0_01, 60MB each.
    I hope I can delete the earlier updates without harm to my system.

    You should uninstall not delete.

    How come they cumulate this way?
    Do I need to do this after every update?

    Is it possible redirect Java folder to a different location, bigger
    drive?

    Software developers often want to have multiple Java versions on their
    PC for build and test purposes.

    Yes.

    If you do a manual install you can specify where it goes.

    I don't know about automatic updates.
