The following's copied and pasted from https://superuser.com/q/1659902.
――――――――――
1. I must reduce HD disk space. How safe is deleting Apps.ppkg? Its size is 3.6 GB. I must double check because another program file usmt.ppkg MUST NOT be deleted.

2. I read this abstruse explanation of Apps.ppkg, but I don't understand it. Please explain it like I'm 5?

It doesn't clearly advise if deleting is safe. In actuality, the last sentence suggests that deletion ISN'T safe — because if deleting is safe, why would you need make "a backup of the file on external storage"???
