Just a general question to find out the general practice by CSers whether you individually delete your photos from your memory card or do you re-format your cards to delete the photos after uploading them to your PC?

I have been deleting my photos individually if I did not shoot too many and re-format my card when there are a lot of shots I want to delete.

Thanks for sharing.

It's both for me. Delete for about 3 times, then format once.

Would format the card before using for important events.

I generally delete ALL, once a while (maybe 2-3 times) I would reformat whole card.

Format every 2 to 3 days... or when I am up for a new project.

I'd download and leave the images on my card till the next shoot. Then I'll reformat all cards 1/2 hour just before the shoot.

When you cut and paste files, the old files wil only be deleted after the new files are written (it's more of a move rather than cut and paste actually) so there's acually no risk of losing files in between
