    A few days ago I started receiving a notification saying 'Blank SD Card - SD Card is blank or has unsupported files'. If I select the notification it wants me to reformat the SD Card. Weird thing is that it is not acting abnormally and all my photos, texts, music...etc...etc is there.

    The question. What happens if I format the card? I have my apps saved to the SD card. Will they just reinstall themselves? Anything I should be interested in? I'm not worried about my photos and such since I have that all backed up to dropbox.

    Formatting your SD card erases everything on it. You would need to reinstall your apps by getting them again from whatever app store you got them from. I have never seen a message like that on my S2.
