Cannot get unused files removed attached on SD card

Idea

Hi, I think I've got a pretty big problem here. Last year, I got a connection between my phone (Galaxy A5-2017) and my laptop (ASUS) through a transfer cable to move English listening files into my phone. I had been using these files for a period of time. After finishing my course, they became unnecessary and I just want to delete them from my SD card to free up more capacity. No matter how hard I've tried to get it removed, It shown a notification that "cant delete this file''. It really makes me frustrate and furious because they waste nearly 1GB on my SD card.

Anyone know how to deal with this issue ????

Do you have anything else on your SD that you care about? If not you can format the SD card and it will erase everything. 

Edit: this seems like a generic tech support issue, not an Evernote issue.

If you can’t remove them, maybe you could copy what you want to keep, and then format the card.

Or just scrap it physically, a SD card should not represent that much monetary value.

Hi.  If you added these files through a cable connection,  that should be the way to delete them.  This is not an Evernote issue.

If not being able to erase some files from an SD card is a big problem in your world, then life sounds pretty good in Hankville 😁

SD cards have a write protect switch.  Check to see that you haven't accidentally switched that to lock.

If not that, then what the others said, or just toss it and buy another.  Unless you really need a large capacity, these things are pretty cheap now.
