SD Card storage on device

Hi, when viewing the device page, some of our devices are showing that the storage space on the SD card is running low, is this a problem?

We use 16gb SD Cards, but after testing lots of different setups, many different files have been added to the SD card.

Does the device self manage the storage on it’s SD card? or is there any need to ‘manually’ remove files to free up space?

Ah, having hovered over the storage status in the device settings I see that it is self managed!

Correct. The system will always try to keep at least 512MB free by clearing up old unused, but still cached content. You’ll never have to manage storage yourself.
