Deleting clips using Clip browser

I have been convinced that Clip browser is a better way to import files than using the finder. But now I;m wondering if deleting my files through clip browser after I've finished transferring them is as good as doing a reformat in the camera before I shoot on them again. It certainly would be convenient not to have to stop shooting and format.

I've heard other people on this forum say they've been deleting files this way for over a year without issues. I use it to delete files when I'm in a hurry as it helps prevent accidental deletion of clips, but eventually the card gets formatted....just in case. :)

I've been using Clip Browser to delete clips as well without any problems. Between jobs I make sure to format the cards but otherwise this seems to work well.
