I keep my LR catalog files but have too many MB tied up in preview files. Will I lose anything if I delete them? The edited images have been exported to folders on my hard drive.

If you delete the previews, when you try to view the photos in Lightroom, you'll have to wait for the previews to rebuild.

Thanks! So I can free up drive space selectively.
