C partition cleanup before acronis backup

hi folks,

I've installed new drivers for my audio hardware (pro external card) and I noticed that ALL of the previous versions are stored here:
C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository

I took ownership and deleted the older ones for this device, while keeping the previous one used...just in case. The FileRepository folder currently weighs in at 1.5gb

Is windows using this FileRepository frequently or can I delete its contents entirely?

I use Ccleaner to clean out the general cache, etc. But are there some main places that I can delete stuff that I know I don't need anymore?

Adobe MediaCache was another culprit....that was 1.2gb of old stuff for example (Deleted), but I'm just asking about win7 default places at the moment.

thanks for any advice.
