I am looking into factory resetting my 2.2 Android tablet. Is there a way to do this without wiping the contents of the SD card?
Factory resets do not normally affect the external SD card, e.g.,
/sdcard/external_sd. Some devices will wipe everything else under
/sdcard (like the ASUS Transformer) while others will not (like the Samsung Galaxy S). So it depends on your device and which "SD card" you're referring to, and also the filesystem layout — some devices will mount internal/external SD storage in different places than what I mentioned above.
