Full path - where to store the video and photo files on the SD card. By default, the path to the first card is used, which may not be removable on certain devices. For constant write/delete operations, it is advisable to use an external storage card (if available).

 

Starting with Android 4.4 the new system permissions don't allow saving anywhere on the external SD card. Voyager can still record on the SD card, but please select the suggested path (with com.dailyroads.v) in the app's storage settings. You can also try the "Reset paths" button, which keeps your existing selection, but resets the list to usable paths. On some systems, you may even need to move the app to the SD card.

 

Automatic cleanup also checks this folder to search for and delete the oldest temporary video files or photos. If you want to preserve these files until you have time to review them, simply rename the main folder, so you can start fresh. The old folder will remain on the SD card, like any other folder, outside the reach of the application, and without access to GPS data!

 

Sub-folders - if not enabled, only 3 sub-folders are created in the main folder. These are named Videos, Tempvideos and Photos, for storing the 3 kinds of files. But, if the option is enabled, each time you press the Video or Photo button to start a session, a new sub-folder is created and timestamped.

 

Tempvideo and photo capturing limits - allows you to specify limits for storage space, or different other criteria (total duration for tempvideos or number of photos). When a limit is reached, capturing can stop to preserve old files, or the automatic cleanup is triggered and the oldest tempvideo/photo files are deleted, to make room for new ones.

 

Debug options - should only be used when specifically instructed by us. While a log file is useful to debug problems, it is not enough by itself. We'd also need context info, like the steps leading to the problem, and specific timestamps.
