An option where you can setup a maximum space size on a disk. When the size is reached, delete the oldest recordings.

Yes please! It is much more confortable to record everything and review it later to clip it. But if i don’t want my hard drive to be full after a week this feature would be very helpful!

IMO the most valueable options would be:

  • max disk space occupied
  • delete all videos older than n days
  • delete all local clips older than n days

In case the disk space runs out, I’d even drop videos that did not pass the n days yet (oldest ones first). If I define 500GB max, I’d like to have it as some kind of absolute barrier, that cannot be breached.

As Flashed said, specially the “set max space ocupied” option would be the most important one for me. Once that space has been reached, medal should start freeing space starting by the oldest files.

Honestly @Brandon I think the most useful thing would to make it as autonomous as possible. I think the best way of doing this is setting an age limit for recorded sessions and have them be automatically deleted once sessions are over that defined amount of time.

+1 for “max space” option. This would be the most useful for me, as I will often spend a few days solid with Full Session Recording on and fill up the drive.

It’s been 2 years since I saw a post saying that it was being added but to this day it’s not possible. I am deleting medal tv untill this feature gets added, plays.tv had it and medal is unusable without it.

I also uninstalled medal due to this. It’s not even the “I have to cleanup myself” thing rather than forgetting about it, running out of disk space and something else failing due to this.

This seems like an essential feature! It should be a priority competitively to other features that are cool, but don’t feel as necessary as this. Medal plz fix <3

@Vince B @Flashed @Lucas we agree this is a necessity. It’s been discussed and had some brainstorming around it the last couple of months. I hope we have something to announce for it in the near future, please stay tuned and I apologize for the inconvenience.
