Fix Micro SD Card Cannot Delete Photos

I usually remove the SD card from my camera and connect it to the PC with an adaptor, and I will copy or delete photos on my computer. One day I just couldn't delete the images because there was no Delete option when I right-clicked the photo. How to fix this problem?

It's possible that the SD card is write-protected or blocked, the connection between the slot and card is bad, or the SD Card partition file system is corrupted if you cannot erase images from your Micro SD card.

If you want to recover the lost files from your Micro SD card, you can use EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Pro. This recovery tool helps you retrieve precious photos from your camera SD card.

To resolve your SD card problem, you should try the following methods:

1. You should check the physical lock switch on your Micro SD card. This approach is clear-cut and easy. The lock switch just has to be moved downward. Move the lock tab up if it is currently in the downward position.

2. You can use CMD to remove the write protection of your SD card. When the SD card is protected, you cannot delete files from it. Open the CMD window and type in diskpart, list disk, select disk, attributes disk clear readonly one by one. You should also run the CHKDSK command to repair your SD card.

3. When the SD card driver for Windows is out of the current, you cannot erase files from the SD card. You might fail to see the SD card on Windows if you have an old SD card driver. Update the SD card driver if applicable. Or you can update Windows with Windows Update Assistant.

4. The last solution is formatting the Micro SD card on your computer. You can format SD card with Windows built-in tool or a third-party format program.
