Default What's on my SD card?

Hi,

Just started to find my Galaxy S2 constantly rebooting every 3 minutes or so. But i discovered that if, during those 3 minutes, i unmounted the SD card, the phone was stable. However, i usually choose the option to move apps to SD card when it's available. So now, most of my apps are unavailable (greyed out icons).

T-Mobile tech. support suggested reformatting the SD card, but i'd like to back up all those apps first. I plugged the card into my computer to do that, but all i see there is the LOST.DIR common to ext file-systems and a DCIM directory that has camera photos. Where are all the apps?

Meanwhile, i connected the phone to the computer with a USB cable, and there i can see directories for all kinds of apps (mostly cache stuff, i don't see apps themselves). So, when i press the "move to SD card" button, where do they go? How do i back them up if they don't appear to be on the card when i insert in my computer?

Any clues? Am i missing something obvious here?

Apps moved to SD card should be in the "/.android_secure" folder. Note the leading "."; that hides the folder from the OS so you'll only see that when the card is mounted directly on a computer.

That was it, thanks!

Silly clicky-mouse file navigation programs... A simple "ls -a" from a command prompt revealed the directory
