Hello all, over the years I accumulated over 18 GB of apps (!) and I could really use that space on my HD. Before I do anything reckless, I thought I'd ask to make sure I don't end up losing apps and whatnot. I have already moved all 886 items to an external HD by simply dragging them out of iTunes into the folder, but when I select them in iTunes and hit delete, I am told that "These items will also be deleted from any iPod, iPhone, or iPad which synchronizes with your iTunes library." That's obviously not what I want, so... how would I proceed? I could keep the apps that I effectively have on my phone and my parents' iPad (they use it as a stand-alone device, occasionally syncing to my computer), but I have to manually make a list of them and delete the rest? I thought I could use the "restore purchases" feature, but deleting them on iTunes first apparently will delete them off the devices upon first sync, making that impossible. Any hints would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
