    No "rename" or "delete" option for SD card folders or files


    How do I restore the option to delete or rename folders/files on an SD card?Not sure when this trouble started.There is no delete or rename option in the context options at the top of the respective window - not even a grayed-out icon.All other folders/files that I've checked have both the delete and rename options - just not the SD card.I can copy files from another source to the SD card, but the SD card copy has no rename or delete options. The only way I seem to be able to remove it is enter an "undo" command Ctrl-z, or reformat the SD card. Other USB external storage devices do not hav

  2. Can't delete files from sd card.

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    1: What is the exact error code/error message you have received when you try to delete/format the files?



    2: Is that happening with all the files or with any specific file?



    3: Which Operating System are you using?



    If you are trying to format the SD card, you may try the following steps.



    Please backup your files before proceeding with this step. This will delete all the files saved in the SD Card





    Step 1:

    Insert the microSD card into your computer card reader. If you do not have a card reader, use a USB card reader to add this capability. If your card reader does not accept microSD cards, insert the card into an SD card adapter
    to convert it to standard SD card size. When doing so, make sure the adapter's lock slider is in the unlocked position.





    Step 2:

    Click the "Start" button, right-click "Computer" and select "Manage" to open the Computer Management dialog box.



    Step 3:

    Click "Disk Management" from the left panel.



    Step 4:

    Right-click the microSD card from the list of storage devices and select "Format."



    Step 5:

    Click the "File System" drop-down menu and select the file system you wish to use. If the card will be used in personal electronic devices, choose "FAT32" or "FAT." If the card will only be used on your computer, choose "NTFS."



    Step 6:

    Click "OK" to format the microSD card.





    Reply with the required information if the issue is not resolved with the above mentioned steps.



    Hope it helps.

  3. Copying Folders containing Files to an SD Micro card

    Hi Colin,

    A factor why you're the files/folders that you've transferred isn't showing is due to the configuration of your settings. We recommend that you show the hidden files/folders. Follow the steps below:

    • Go to File Explorer > Click View tab.
    • Select Options > Hit Change folder and search options.
    • Go to View tab > Select Show hidden files, folders, and drives under
      Hidden files and folders.
    • Click Apply > Hit OK.

    Check if your files/folders are now showing on your Micro SD card.

    Keep us updated with the result.
