The file should not change position in the Flash, therefore only take seconds to re-write the directory entry and FAT table
what you describe is the way MS does it in Windows, and that is fine for magnetic disks. However, since a NAND FLASH allocation block cannot be rewritten until it is truely erased, maybe Jinke is doing an actual erase when files are deleted? That would improve write speeds when the blocks are later reused.
