Delete All vs. Format...Pros and Cons

I’ve had some problems using a 64G Extreme Pro SD card in my DJI drone. I’ve been told that DJI software leaves behind a lot of junk files. To prevent problems, I thought I might just reformat the card after each use.

Are there any drawbacks to frequent reformat? Isn’t it like getting a fresh card? I do understand that formatting does write to the card, and the card does have a limited lifespan, but isn’t that minimal?

The memory controller of the card will die sooner than the NAND memory chips on it, even if you format it after each write (not with fast formatting, but with normal formatting). The life of the card will be halved, but in return you will not have framdrop shots due to sudden speed drops.
