When SD became the norm I went to "single use" because the cards are so cheap.

Are you saying that you use a card and keep it when full instead of formatting it for reuse?

Yes. A 64GB card holds 1500 files, and costs less than it used to cost me to buy a 36-exposure roll of film and get it processed (without scaling that for the change in prices or my income since I was shooting lots of film). The cost of storage for my shoots is much less than the cost of driving to the shoot.

My back up of last resort is the card I shot on.

(I still have 4GB cards from c. 2008 although I'm not relying on them working!)
