    Can I safely remove my original Lightroom catalog from my iMac if I am now using more current versions on an external drive?

      When I started using Lightroom, I installed it on my iMac - so I have the original, and also Lightroom 2, 4 and 5 on that drive, and I always launched Lightroom from the icon in the dock.  For the past year or so I have been launching and working from a copy on an external hard drive, so I believe that is the current version of my catalogs. 

      Can I safely delete the earlier versions of Lightroom from my computer (I am trying to free up some space).

      Can I reinstall the Lightroom software directly to the external drive and then delete even that from the computer - since I assume the external drive refers to the LR 5 on the computer in order to open?
