The card is 2Gb, works fine, formatted in fat16.
After inserting it into the pc with win10 I found the "System Volume Information" folder which is practically irremovable from the card both from windows and from the calculator. I found a way by connecting it via OTG to the mobile and Android deleted the folder (and this is meant as a suggestion).
Is there a more practical way to do this cleaning? Any file manager on the calculator? any tools on win10?

In Win10, open a command window (WinKey-R, CMD, [Enter]), change to the subject drive (in my case G: ) and then:

G:> rmdir /S "system volume information" (or whatever the exact name is, and do use the quotes) and as soon as that is done (do wait to get the prompt back) remove the card, then close the cmd window.
