Low-level formatting

I think you're pushing your luck with only one card.

I have a couple of cards but because I have two different brand cameras, I don't switch cards between them.

What's the purpose of a low level format?

According to Canon, "Do low-level formatting if the card's recording or reading speed seems slow."

According to articles I've read in the past, low-level formatting erases all recordable sectors in the SD card.
