      Expandable Storage - How Does it Work

      I am new to the whole Formuler devices. I recently purchased a Z7+ and noticed that in the android settings it shows only 4GB available for apps (I was surprised as I thought the system had 8).

      I was wondering how the expandable micro SD and USB hard drive storage worked (what do they allow to do). Do they augment the space allowed for apps to install ? Or can it only be used for recordings (in which case its best to have one or the other) ?

      Thank you in advance

      5GB included already installed Apps and are reserved for Apps and your installations, its enough for many Apps, App files and they needs.
      3GB are reserved for Android and Updates.

      USB Stick, SD Card or USB HDD are always needed for recording or playback from saved videos, files, pictures etc. Even some Apps when recognise USB Storage can save data on it or use the device for caching.
      So yes, USB Stick or HDD are always good choice, depends from your needs and use.

      To specify is something else then automatic chose from system for normal use if you are at beginning with the box. User who need to change something (if needed) can chose extended device he want, but for recording like already written. Also should the user prefer e always the App Install on Internal eMMC storage because its much faster then USB device. In case of extract for big App databases you can use the path to USB device to have more place on eMMC.

      @SAM Can you please confirm if it is possible to use mini SD card to expand internal storage? By expanding internal storage means i want to install applications. I do not have issue with recording as I can do that on USB.

      I used mini SD card and set it as default storage but still applications were not installed on this and internal storage was full.

      Also is there any recommendation for mini SD card brand, speed etc and what is max size supported?

      Hi,

      2.5GB internal storage are reserved for OS and system, all the rest should be 5.5GB or similar for Apps. Enough place for hundreds of Apps and fastest solution because internal emmc.
      Expandable storage for normally use like recording, timeshift and other files. About setting sd card as default storage and then this message internal storage full is not clear and i need to speak with the devs. first.
      There are no specific recommendation for SD cards. You can use all cards you want, faster is better like always. Maximum supported microSD card size is 256GB for all formuler boxes.
