    Yesterday afternoon, the notification bar stated my SD card was damaged. This was out of the clear blue, no errors

    I've seen others have problems that seem to point to Beautiful Widgets also. Don't recall anyone saying it corrupted their SD card though.

    Is it possible your phone was near a magnet of some sort - a refrigerator magnet, a speaker - something like that?

    Try using someone else's SD card in your phone.
    When I had my G1 I did something with the settings and messed up my card. How long have you had it? You might just need get a new one.

    The card is up and running after I did the error check. It deleted the folders and created "found.000" folders for the corrupted files. I point the problem to the update to BW. I can't think of anything else that would kill those folders.

    Ran error check again and it's ok. I also did a defrag just to be on the safe side.

    Had this happen to me. Did a nand backup and once rebooted it said the card was damaged. I then put the card in my PC and it failed. It wouldn't even format. Last ditch effort I put the card in my Nikon Digi Cam. My Nikon was able to format and get it working again. No clue....

    FYI defragging a flash device can cause decreased life expectency.

    Standard hard drives will benefit from a defrag because it moves parts of files that are spread around closer together so the head doesn't have to move around from side to side looking for data.

    Flash drives have their own internal data management chip which locates data so that memory cells are evenly "worn". Since each memory cell has a limited amount of writes before it can die, defragging can cause that to be worn down faster.
