    I looked in my sd card on phone and there is a folder called LOST.DIR. I cant view them and I have over 400 items in there. Can I erase them?

    If you did your phone would just put it back next time you rebooted the phone, they are just system files placed there by the OS.

    I have had that folder since I had a Droid X, I think it is just a random system folder the OS places on the external SD card.
