    I have a ton of crap on my SD card, including old velocity information and I'm using Raptor so I don't think I need it. I was wondering if someone has or could create a list of the needed files on the SD card so I can delete the ones I don't need. I have folders for apps which I don't have on my phone anymore and i don't want to remove them if it is going to mess something up.

    As everybody installs different things on their phone, you really can't create a vanilla list of things you can/can't delete.

    However, if you no longer use Velocity, you can delete those, and if you have folders from apps that you no longer have installed, you can delete those as well.

    Suggestion: copy everything off to a backup folder on your PC first. That way if something crashes after you delete it, you can put it back.

    And yeah if you are running Raptor, you can delete anything Velocity. Also any zip you copy there for install purposes could technically be deleted once they have been flashed. You'll just need to put them back again if you ever need to reflash.
