I just bought a Raspberry CanaKit for Raspberry Pi 4 with all the latest features, and the Micro SD comes already preloaded with NOOBS (Gotta love that acronym) and backup files it appears, so why does every online Set-Up Tutorial, Video, and even their own CanaKit booklet suggest you should format your SD card , which I believe essentially wipes it clean. I don't want to have to reinstall NOOBS and all the stuff CanaKit put on there. I feel that formatting the card is a step I should skip, but unfortunately everyone I know used an old SD card they already owned and no kit. What do you all think? I think I should not format it, given the fact that it's a brand new clean SD with preloaded goodies.
Will there be problems if I don't format it?
Am I right or wrong?
Any advice is appreciated.
