    i was wondering if once i have installed any zip file from the sdcard can i safely delete it or move it to my computer so i can have more space or do i have to leave the zip file on the sdcard?

    I've deleted just about every file on my SD card with no issues. The only files I do not delete are Nandroid, ClockWork, and recovery.

    Hope this helps.

    Yes, I have deleted many of they. And, like you, I have several backup copies of my Sd card on my computer. Other than the recovery files that I listed above, the only caution I can think of is if you have your apps on the SD card.

    I would be cautious. I have a Mac and when I connect/mount the Mac automatically makes duplicates of some files.
