    Can I get rid of these files? They don't have any extension - simply named "zip" and "zipalign". From a few quick searches it looks like they're used by developers for something? Amirite?

    It's just a little annoying to me to have them on the SD Card.

    When I partitioned my sdcard I backed up everything on the card...after the partition was created I moved everything back, with the exception of zip and zipalign. I haven't noticed any negative effects. If you choose to remove them I would suggest copying them to a folder on your pc so you can replace them if something goes wrong.

    What exactly does it mean to "partician" and I have already deleted it. So I guess I am out of luck if those were critical parts.

    Sorry, yes I partitioned my sdcard, which is basically splitting it into two parts. I did so in preparation of flashing a cyanogenmod ROM, which uses apps2sd (for storing apps on your sdcard instead of the physical memory)...when you partition, you essentially format the card...sorry I wasn't clear on that on my first reply :)

    Anyways, it doesn't appear that those 2 files are needed for anything...probably a remnant from an install of a ROM or something...
