    Perfect. If licensing isnt an issue, i would do what Tannar suggested, and vaporize all but 2020. Thats all ive got on my system, now.

    (And get Properties+ (its free)) if you are primarily Revit users just getting in to Navis. Its worth it.

    Ditto for the Networked (FlexLM) Licensing.
    That used to take two licenses for different versions, and it no longer does.
    SO glad we no longer have to worry about running out of licenses just because we're in the middle of upgrading.

    To a point....we've always wound up continuing a thread when the post should be concluded, and I tend to not lock threads unless it gets out of hand.

    @hans...if you want to debate the Navisworks issue, please feel free to do so in the Out There section of the Forum. Just keep it civil please.

    OP is still commenting, so I won't be locking it unless posts continue to be unsupportive or not related to the question.

    Side note... You don't have to install every version of Autocad either. That can help with the hard drive space a little bit too.

    If you want to save space on your SSD Drive:
    Keep only single installation of one of Navisworks 2016-2020 which is the latest and most compatible with your current Revit version you are using on your projects.

    Justification
    - You do not need older versions of Navisworks, because Autodesk is not updating this software anymore, except adding compatibility to BIM 360 Coordinate (formerly BIM 360 Glue) and giving some cosmetic changes. All Autodesk effort is moved now to BIM 360 Cloud platform.
    - You will find that Navisworks 2016-2020 share the same NWF, NWC, NWD file version, due to lack of changes, and when you save NWD you see option to save to 2016-2020 compatible file in Navisworks 2020 for example.
    - Using any version of Navisworks 2016-2020, you will still be able to open previous version of Navisworks files such as 2013,2014,2015, but pre-2016 versions of Navisworks will not be able to open 2016-2020 Navisworks files.
    - Another things to consider. License usage, I agree with statements above, that using the same licence year pool, helps reducing licence usage, and reducing management of licences.
