    Is it safe to delete the "installers" folder located in the Applications folder? It's about 600 MB, and I could use the space.

    That's not a normal file - again, what's in there?

    Did you install an app and that appeared there?

    I don't believe I installed anything that caused it - I thought it was a default OS X file.

    inside is:

    Applications>Installers>Xcode Tools

    inside the Xcode Tools folder there are a couple PDFs ("About Applescript Studio"), a file called "Developer.mpkg", and a folder called Packages; attached is a screenshot of what's inside that folder
