Safe to remove?

I was uninstalling some programs to free up some space and then I see this:

Are those safe to delete? Or do I need to keep them

It should be safe to remove the SQL stuff. The C++ redistributables might be required for some games or programs to run.

As #Vikhedgehog correctly pointed out, the C++ Redistributables are required for many of the programs we commonly use. You can remove the SQL Server and SQL stuff as data-driven apps use it.

Well, since they are re-distributables, you can remove them. But. be sure to create a system restore point.
