ClickOnce Deployment CleanUp

I have a WinForms ClickOnce Deployment.  I am on Version 2.5.1.30 and I know for sure that no one has anything earlier than 2.5.1.25.  

In the Setup Location under the Application Files Folder there are folders for all previous version just eating up space.  Folders are like this one (application_2_5_1_4) for example

Am I safe to delete the Application File Directories for previous versions without screwing anything up?

These are kept to enable rollback in case some users have to revert to a previous version. I thus usually keep 3 or 4 and get rid of the older ones. I never had any problem.
