    I got down to 5.5 GB on the hard drive of my Macbook Pro. I ran a sweeper program on it and found that the Mobile Applications folder has a size of 69 GB's. I have not played most of the iPhone/iPad games in over a year. Would it be safe to delete the files? I don't really care that I'm risking that some of them are no longer on sale in the App store. If I haven't used them in a year, then it's no big deal to me to potentially lose access to some of them.

    Go in to iTunes and delete them from there. That way iTunes won't try and download updates. Also, the file names don't always properly match the App name.

    And if it's apps you don't care use nor will use, you may want to hide the App purchase in the iTunes Store.
