Do I need both component and vst files installed on my computer?

I am just about to upgrade to Live 9 and thought now would be a good time to sort through all my plugins etc. I've noticed that the majority of the plugins on my computer are installed both as VST and AU formats. I was wondering if it was necessary to keep all of them or if I could just delete all of the VST files and keep the AU ones?

    Theoretically you could use either vst or au.
    But before deleting all vst's, make sure every single one of them works with Live, wether it is an au or vst file :-)
