How do I go about freeing up space on memory card?

Hey guys. I would like to free up space so that I can put some videos on the Vita to watch on a 7 hour flight tomorrow.

I was wondering how to remove some games and stuff from the memory card. I read the manual here:

http://manuals.playstation.net/document/en/psvita/cm/app_pc.html

However I'm confused about a few things.

It's saying that it only copies stuff from the memory card and not the Vita card? Is it referring to the game card when it says Vita card?

It also makes it sound like the game apps itself do not get copied but just the save data.

Does that mean I have to download the apps again when I want to play them later?

Any extra advice would be great.

Yes, if you tell the Vita to copy a game you have on a card, it'll just copy the saves. It won't copy the game (which you shouldn't need it to do anyway, since you have it on a card).

When it says that, it's still only talking about games on a card.

For games you have downloaded, when you copy them to PC, the entire game (including the saves) gets copied.

Thanks for clearing that up Eoin. Much appreciated.
