Can I format my phone's SD card from the phone?

Can I format my HTC Desire HD's SD card from the phone? I'm assuming there wouldn't be any essential data on it? I don't mind deleting games, photos, etc.

Yes, go to setting -> SD Card/Storage. Unmount card and format/erase it.

There is no user/application data stored on the card. However, additional data that is required by apps to function can be stored on SD card. First, make sure that you did not move any applications to run from SD card as they all will need to be reinstalled (move them back to phone storage). Any external data downloaded by apps will need to be downloaded again.
