Windows Central Question

I'm using 8GB card on my Lumia 535. Recently it was full and was unable to format using mobile. So I open it using PC and it had lots of hidden files which seems to be virus. After formatting SD card and hard resetting the phone, it continuously hapenning.

did you plug your phone to a PC before this happened? as the mobile OS does not recognise EXE files and have it's own sandboxing for each app, can anyone tell me if this is possible?

the hidden files could be map files, whatsapp cache, app data or anything else. Viruses for windows 10 mobile are unheard of at the moment. It could be more likely that your pc has a virus which then jumped to the sd card
