My Android 4.2 phone only has an option Erase SD card under System Settings, but not an option to format.
My card has read errors on some files I want to fully format it to check if it's just a case of logical disk errors (those would go away) or if it's hardware and I should replace it.
I did try this (what's to lose?) and it said Checking SD card and was done in a few seconds; that's what makes me ask the question.
Would plugging it into my Windows computer and formatting it there be better? Or running
I know that there is not really an old-fashioned formatting going on on SSD devices, but I want all card logical sectors to be scanned (read) for errors. Will 'erase' do that?
