View storage device space usage

This article applies to customers who have the new version of Fiber TV. If you have the older version of our user interface, please view this article on how to view storage device space usage.

You can check how much disk space your recordings are currently using on the storage device. You can also view a summary of how your storage device is being used—for example, how much space is being used by recordings marked as Keep Forever.

Generally, you don't have to do anything to maintain your storage device. As needed, your device automatically deletes recordings you didn't mark Keep Forever to prevent it from becoming full.

To view how much space is used on your storage device:

  1. Press on the remote control, select DVR from the menu, and press ok.

  2. Select Manage at the top of the page and press ok.

    On the DVR Manage page, the percentage used indicator shows the approximate percentage of storage space used.
