Hello Friends I wanted to update from the free kontakt 5 to latest version of free Kontakt 6 on my laptop but after downloading native access and installing I changed my mind but to my surprise during installation there were some Microsoft files added and after doing an un-install close to 10gb of space was never returned to my ssd. These Microsoft Visual ++ redistributable (x64) programs were added but still doesn't amount to 10gb. Will it be ok to delete those files that were added during the Kontakt 6 installation? also where did that free space on my ssd go?

Presuming your SSD is also your main drive, you might want to check the following (although I would have thought they should be automatically removed)

C:\Program Files\Native Instruments

C:\ProgramData\Native Instruments

C:\Users\YOUR_LOGIN_NAME\AppData\Local\Native Instruments

C:\Users\Public\Documents\Native Instruments

Could also open file explorer, right click on your SSD drive, select Properties, then under the General tab, select Disk Cleanup

Could also try asking on their forums at https://www.native-instruments.com/forum/forums/kontakt.33/

Thanks Ojustaboo those suggestions all helped but deleting old restore points really made a big difference.
