Probably a dumb question, but these 500 pg owner's manuals overwhelm me, so if anyone knows off the top of your head. . . .
I have a Canon 1DIV and a 5DIV.  I have the cameras set up to record all shots to both cards.  I'll pull the CF, copy it to a folder with the day's date, cull that folder, and then go delete the culls from the CF; of course the files are also on the SD in the camera.  In camera, I can reformat, but is there an easy way to "synch" the cards to free up the space on the SD that I deleted from the CF?
Good light,
Craig

I don't believe any camera manufacturer offers that capability,

Thanks, E.J.
Seems lIke an easy no-brainer to me, but I guess better brains than mine figure otherwise. . . .
Good light,

Why do you want to keep the images on the cards anyway? If you copy them to your computer and back them up, then format your cards.

Simply as a backup until I backup my pc to an external drive - laziness, I guess.
