    I Have about filled up the space on the camera mini SD card.
    When I open the folder on my PC and try to delete the files, I get a pop up saying the files are locked.
    Even when I change the write protect switch on the adapter, I still can't delete them from the mini SD card.
    Can't access them as admin either.

    If I format the mini SD card, I suppose this will remove everything including the video/photo files.

    Will the folders be regenerated when I install the card back into the CGO camera?

    Thanks for any clarification.

    Using W7 or W10? Check the folder properties, it may be set to read-only.
    If you have made a copy of the contents onto a HD, you can re-format the card.

    I am using Windows 8.
    I previously did check the properties. and it was Read Only.
    I set it to Archive and still no joy.
    The only other option under properties was Hidden.

    Thanks for the suggestion.
    I did already save the video and photo files.
    I will take your suggestion and run with it.
