    So my SD Card has the following folders I dont know what they are and want to know if I can get rid of them...

    .blur
    albumthumbs
    Android
    data
    LOST.DIR
    logs
    tmp


    and a file named thumbnailScale.trace

    Can I delete these?

    you have a 16GB memory card - these are small files (most likely)

    i would not touch them

    No you can not, unless you don't want your phone working.

    They are on the SD card though, how can they possibly be vital files since you can unmount the SD card....

    Even if you delete them and don't cause any problems, once you mount it back the phone will probably put them right back.

    I would leave .blur; not sure what that's for. I don't have it on mine. albumthumbs I'm guessing just has a lot of images for your music artwork? But not sure on that. Android has some data for apps such as Google Maps; I wouldn't delete it. Data has more data on other apps that you install. No clue what LOST.DIR is for, but personally I think it'd be safe to delete. logs I deleted. I deleted tmp as well.

    I think a majority of these will recreate themselves if you remove them so it's probably pointless to even bother touching any of them. I know logs and tmp are back on mine now. I doubt any of it will screw up your phone. At worst, you'll probably just have to reinstall some apps that might get corrupt.
