How to fix some mysterious problems.

I was testing out what would happen if i removed /var/media/purchases and i thought in worst case scenario my music would disappear but all my apps also disappear that didn't have admin rights such as settings, music, cydia etc... You might wonder why i did this, well i was testing out what i could and could not remove ( that takes much space and is most likely leftovers from other apps)and i did gain ~6gb of space of the files that didn't matter. my question is, why did i loose all the apps and files? NOTE: I did make a backup before trying this and im restoring it right now.

Apps are something you can purchase too, y'know.
