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 use Windows 10. 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"???

Stop.
Give us some info on this system.

Drives, what OS, consumed space, etc, etc.

Don't just randomly delete something.
And when doing something like this, a backup of your data is ALWAYS a good idea.
The possibility of an 'oops' is far too high.

The only thing we know right now is that it's Windows 10, thanks to the subforum.
