Default those little SD cards and formating

I noticed when I wanted to view my SD card from my drone it had a picture single shot folder and a video folder .well I deleted the single shot folder, will it come back when I reinsert it and take a single shot or should I reformat it on my computer ? if so how do I reformat it

Depending on the type of SD card and how it was factory formatted, adding a File Folder may be difficult, but your camera should allow you to reformat it through that device....no guarantee the Folder will be replaced, but you should be able to take still's that will save on the card individually anyway.
Sometimes, reformatting an SD card through a PC, pad or cell phone will not be compatible with the camera firmware and reproduction errors will occur..........try reformatting the card through the camera or unit you are taking photo's with first.

It will most likely recreate the folder on the card automatically when you take a photo.

Formatting of SD Card - most multi-rotors use FAT32 or in some cases EXFAT ...

Formatting of the card via a card reader on a PC is common to remove some of the rubbish that builds up on them.
If you do format .... use FAT32 ..... if you use NTFS or other - you will most likely find the card will not work in the multi-rotor camera.

I suggest you just put the card back into the model and take a photo !!

NTFS is mainly used for a boot sector in Windows.
I have many times totally deleted folders on camera cards but they always appears back again. You can easily reformat every now and then just to clean things up.

NTFS is actually the form used by Win2000 and most server bases.

Yes I have had a bit to do with it lately as I have been converting my computers to SSD drives so I have done a lot of formatting and cloning lately. Pretty much over it now. Everything is working great and ultra fast....
