    What will it delete? Will I lose critical files needed to keep my rooted features, kernel, rom?
    I ask becuase I use Rhapsody to download music albums. It takes up lots-o-memory.
    I moved Rhapsody folder to my External SD n now the albums won't play.
    Any advise is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Rooted. Running #2 2.2 Of course ;). CWM.

    Back it up to a pc and go for it. Can always paste it back.

    If you format it your phone will be okay. But whatever things you or apps saved to it will be gone forever... I actually format internal every time I flash a rom because I like it all clean and fresh and I always try apps out that save things to it but I end up deleting it because I didn't like it or whatever and what ever it saved is now useless and a waste of space

    hi, i believe my phone/internal memory is busted. upon boot it will notify me of "USB storage has an unknown fs format.. do you want to format? YES/CANCEL "

    i leave it as is. fearing of by formatting it, the installed OS will be wiped out. i have my external / micro sd card BACKUP. .so no worries. my only question is, if i will format the internal memory.. will it go back to the default settings like when i bought my phone?
