Default [Q] the one on "setting - storage - make more space - miscellaneous - programdata"

When I tried to free up some storage, I see that this programdata has taken almost 5gb of my internal
Yet I have the option to delete it
Is it safe to delete it?

Can you post a screenshot? Is it a folder or a file? If a folder, what is inside?

If the contents are hidden that is probably a sign that you don't want to mess with it, but if it was me, I would make a nandroid backup and give the 3 gig folder the axe to see if anything bad happens.

However, if you are not running a custom recovery where you can backup and restore the system, I am not sure I would do anything. Too risky.

Would do the same here. But at first I would check this folder with a file explorer, such as es file explorer. In the settings of this explorer you can activate to show hidden apps and check what is inside this folder.
