Several reasons, the delete choices often leave things behind that 
clutter your memory card  and reduce the numbers of pictures it will 
hold, it makes sure the file structure and data are clean so you avoid 
errors or corrupted files and  related to that it makes the memory card 
more reliable less likely to have a corrupted card that is unreadable.
