I’m wondering exactly how the process of overwriting the oldest footage works when the SD card on my v3 card becomes full,
I know it says it overwrites the oldest footage first but how does that happen ?
Even though the card gets overwritten oldest first and continues to write to it, I wonder if it’s a good idea to Format the SD card at some points to clean up any possible issues with it. Especially since I tend to take off footage that I Really want to keep along the way.
I have thought from time to time that a full card that’s being overwritten seems to have issues “BUT I can’t prove that”. May be other things causing issues.
Any input or thoughts on this would be appreciated…tlhutch4
I’m using 128 GB cards in 4 of the cams doing continuous recording and I usually format them when they get to about 117 GB. I save the videos I want first then format. I know it’s not required but I personally do not have the need for a bunch of useless videos . My dash cam says I should format the card once a month. I really don’t know if it is harmful or helpful?
I also have a 128gb card and do continuous recording on my 5 cams. Until now I have been formatting when they are nearly full about every 2 weeks. Seems like you and I are following the same process.
I will continue my process unless or until someone here advises otherwise…,Thanks, tlhutch4
