SD card was "full" but had no data on

I was trying to take a photo on my Canon camrea however it was saying my SD card was full. I plugged the card  into my cumputer, dragged the 4 photos that were on there on to my desktop, deleted the file "100 CANON". 

This is what I normally do when downloading and emptying my SD card but I am unsure if its the correct way of doing it as i have never been taught! 

Any help would be appreiciated!

Re: SD card was "full" but had no data on

if you have a Mac and delete files you have to empty the trash before disconnecting the card or the space will not be freed up. Easiest way to fix the issue is to format the card in the camera or computer. Once that is done it should free all the space. next time deleting files from the card make sure and empty the trash before disconnecting the card.

instructions for formatting on a mac linked below. If you want to format on your camera check the camera user manual
