Which Java modules can I uninstall?
My C: drive is getting a little full. Normally, this wouldn't be a problem because my D: partition still has about 24 GB of space left. However, Disk Defragmenter needs at least 15% of free space in order to work efficiently, and my C: drive only has about 12.5% left.

Therefore, I am trying to install some non-essential programs. I noticed that I have several Java modules that are taking a lot of disk space:
  • J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 9
  • Java 2 Runtime Environment, SE v1.4.2_12
  • Java 2 SDK, SE v1.4.2_12
  • Java DB
  • Java(TM) 6 Update 23
  • Java(TM) SE Development Kit 6 Update 21

Are any of them redundant? If so, are they safe to install? I would like to keep the ability to run and compile Java applications.

You only need the latest release of Java installed. Everything else you can remove.

I'd wipe it all and just install the newest JRE. You certainly don't need that SDK, unless you're doing development.
