If your GoPro videos live on your SD card, you'll quickly run out of space. So, once you've saved your videos, how do you delete files from your GoPro?
Or, perhaps the shot you just took was less than perfect, and you want to delete it and try again -- what then?
There are a few different methods to delete photos and videos -- they're all pretty simple, but can sometimes be hard to find on your own, especially when using a GoPro without a screen.
Here are three different techniques you can use, no matter what GoPro model you own, and all you need is your GoPro and (possibly) a computer and a USB cord or smartphone with the GoPro app.
You can clear up space with just your GoPro -- if you're out shooting and fill up your memory card but still have more videos to record, this method can free up enough space to get you shooting again.
But what if you want to delete a single video, but it's not the last shot that you took? You can use the GoPro app to select a specific photo or video to delete.
You can also delete files using your computer instead of the app or the GoPro directly.
Deleting photos from your GoPro is relatively simple, but there's more than one way to do it. Using the GoPro is the most convenient method to use when out recording, or the GoPro app gives you the same mobility with the flexibility to choose single files instead of just all files or the last file only.
Or, if you're connecting the GoPro to your computer anyways, dragging and dropping the files in the trashcan is another quick method for deleting files.
