Most of my Ext SD card folders have been renamed to μxxxxx... where xxxx is the characters 2 to end of the folder name. e.g. μndroid. Also load of folders/files have been moved to LOST.DIR and are unreadable. Is this a mobile phone virus? My phone is Galaxy Ace2 running Android 4.1.2. Thanks in advance for any help.

Welcome to Android Central! It sounds like the card has become corrupted. This usually isn't due to a virus--it's usually due to some issue with the phone's SD interface. Unmount the card (in Settings>Storage), remove it, and insert it into your computer. See if you can read the data with the computer file browser. If so, backup all files immediately. Then run chkdsk to look for bad/corrupt sectors: http://forums.androidcentral.com/am...guide-using-chkdsk-fix-corrupted-sd-card.html
