I did a website for a family member. I saved all the HTML files in a folder on my HD and uploaded them. About 6 months later I downloaded the files to a new directory, did some modifications and then uploaded the changes. Now I have the old folder and the new folder both containing similar html files.

Is there any need to keep the old folder with files? I am just wondering if there is a reason to keep them that I am not thinking of, before I delete the old files.

I guess I really do not need to keep the current ones either since they are online, but I worry that if something goes wrong with the hosting I need them for backup. Keeping one set is not a big deal to me, but I don't want to hoard these files if I do not need to.

Thank you.
