    I am new to this so I was reading old posts about people finding drones and searching for the owner. In a few of the posts, people looked at the SD card for clues.

    I just created a text file called "Owner Info.txt" and put my name, phone numbers, and email address in it. I then copied the file to the top level directory on the SD card.

    I never expect to loose my drone, but who does?

    Not a bad idea, many put a sticker label for that.

    Don't forget your .txt file will go bye-bye when you format it though.

    Yes, but there is no reason to ever format an SD card after the first time.

    It's good practice to re-format after emptying your card, it keeps your reading and writing speeds up.

    I don't believe that. Do you have evidence to support this?
