comment Canon 6D resetting folders on card format - a way to stop this?
Unfortunately, I'm really looking for something in-camera... I already do some degree of renaming on import, but I do that to a name that corresponds to the number on the camera display while shooting, and that's what I'm trying to get to increase monotonically. I've found a workaround that seems to work for me, and I'm thinking this answer really doesn't give me much to help things... downvoting. :-/

Will an occasional format get me (most of) the same benefit? I could deal with reformatting in-camera periodically, with special care to re-create the folders I need... but will that actually help?

Also, I've just posted an answer for the workaround I'm going with. This still gets a +1 though, for useful information. Also, do you see any downsides to the other answer, especially with respect to wear-levelling or other such details?

The wear levelling aspect is interesting... I hadn't known about that before reading ScottieC's thing, and really, your refreshed mention of it made me understand it better. Though I'm still uncertain about one critical aspect of it: Is that done within the card itself, or is the "OS" (either in-camera or on my computer) having to take care of that? In the latter case, I would tend to trust the camera to have done a better job of taking that into account, since it's more specifically designed around flash media... Thoughts?
