I am getting rid of the drilling toolpaths on all my old programs and switching to inside profiles with smaller bits and if I delete and move the original then the previews stay there and will not go away???? I'm worried that it will actually cut both?

Two ways to clear that up:
1> Re-calculate tool paths.(But I assume you already did...)
2> if the new holes are on a new layer but the tool path for original holes is still in the tool path list, it will indeed cut those holes - trust that if it shows the tool tracing that shape, the machine will be instructed to do so, whether vectors are erased or not. Solution: delete original hole drilling tool path. Quick test/non-delete option: toggle that tool path on/off to test if they go away. Then you may choose to toggle off prior to saving the part file, or simply delete if you're convinced you no longer want it at all.

hope that helps,

Already recalculated and did not work. Nothing on the layers or in the toolpath list..... It ran fine and didnt cut the extra holes.....
