    All except the Lost.dir.

    Thats put there by Android. The rest are from/for apps. It may require them to be reinstalled, but OS wise you are fine.

    LOST.DIR is something mac disk repair looks for and will ask about as part of it's repair process. If it's related at all to the standard lost+found, then it's a special file that holds all the corrupted or orphaned files found during a file system check.

    If your concerned about deleting any of these copy them to you computer before you delete. Then you will have a backup which you can restore if necessary.

    Just delete some of your back ups that you don't need from your nandroid folder. If you labeled them correctly, you should know which back ups are the most important ones in there.

    Thanks gjuys. I did have a lot of backups! Went from 1.9G avail to about 9G. Imma leave those other folders alone unless you guys know I can delete them. Adynalyn who replied said I can but also said there for apps and I might have to reinstall the apps))s? That don't make sense, why would I want to do that?

    I think he was just trying to provide a space solution for you. Other than that, if you delete a program file for any app, the app won't work. That's why you'd have to reinstall.

    On the same subject I have what look to be left over files from previously installed, but now uninstalled apps. Can I delete these: com.com2us.HB3DLITEtexture.store, robo_defense_free.bak?

    If you no longer use or have robodefence then you can definitely delete that second file

    Thanks I ended up swapping out my card and started over pretty much. The card swap was really easy; I only had to move over my 3 or 4 media types: mp3s, videos, my nes/snes roms, and pictures. Everything else seemed to stay in place w/ no negative effects. Cheers Motorola! Cheers Droid!
