    I think the folder called "Android" may have been created accidentally when I recently did a factory reset while the SD card was still in the phone. The phone automatically assumed that the SD card was the default storage. I have since switched the default storage to the phone, but the SD card still has an "Android" folder in it. Can I delete this folder without causing any harm to either the SD card or the phone?

    Deleting this file will not hurt, but Android's system will simply recreate this file based on data which the device has deemed necessary to save to your SD card. The only way to stop this by not using an SD card in the first place. Your smart phone's system is simply using part of the SD card to store important data which may need to be accessed IF the system fails to boot or has issues allow the way. By no means is this secondary Android located on your SD card is a back, just merely data just in case the systems has errors.
