Best way to keep one book format and ditch the others

Hi I have imported all my books in various formats, some books in mulitple formats ie lit, pdf, doc - I think it is best to now format them to one format ie mobi and then delete all the other formats? Does this make sense? since I have a kindle believe best to format all to mobi. Can I then go do a window directory search and delete the old formats or will I wreck the Calibre index /dbase.

example if I convert all .doc then do window search find all .doc and delete them out of all the book directories.

just select all books, click the arrow next to the remove books button.
