Hero 5 black - previously 5hrs record time, now just 1hr - same card same camera

Hi,

 

I recently brought a Hero 5 black, my first and only Gopro, i also brought a 128GB Lexar microSD card that says its for use with with Gopro, when i first used the crd i would get 5hrs plus on my standard video settings, after downloading the video and then deleting all the files off it i now only get 1hr of footage.  

 

Do i need to reformat the card somehow?

 

When i put the card into my Imac it says its 128GB.  

 

Any ideas???

That is odd. Try formatting the card in the camera. https://gopro.com/help/articles/How_To/Formatting-an-SD-Card-With-HERO5-Black
