Deleting Videos on GoPro on Mac

Is there a way to delete files off of my GoPro on a Mac? It seems counterintuitive that we would need to use the Capture App on a phone to delete files when I already have the GoPro connected to my computer. It doesn't seem like we can delete files off of the GoPro on the Quick App? Is there a reason why we can't do this?

Re: Deleting Videos on GoPro on Mac

Hello @spirygorge14317,

 

You can delete GoPro media through the Quik for desktop app on your computer. One option allows you to automatically delete the GoPro files right after you have imported them to Quik. This setting is accessible when you have a camera connected to your computer, you click on Settings and make sure that the appropriate checkbox is ticked. 

 

Another option allows you to select individual (or multiple) media files in Media in Quik and hit the delete icon. Still another option but out of the Quik app, is to locate the folder where the GoPro files are stored in your computer and manually delete the files from there. For this, you can follow this file path: /Users/<YourUserName>/Pictures/GoPro

 

See if you are ale to see or access these options on your Mac. Let us know how it works out. 

 

Thanks, 
Marius
