T837V (tab s4) Low Storage Booting Recovery Option

Hello,

 

I assume this option is when storage is full to the point youre having issues booting so you can still back up your data before a factory reset?

 

I would like some documentation or info on this new recovery feature and how exactly it works?

 

It says it temporarily boots to extsd or pc but I am not sure, any info will be appreciated!

A link to EU forum? Lol.. if it were that easy I would've never posted. I still am unable to find any information on it or how it works.

 

My best guess is when ppl are having issues caused by low disk space enabling it will load with minimal resources allowing the device to boot up so you can manage the storage without having to lose all your data in a wipe..

 

I could be wrong though lol.. I notice no difference when I turn it on.. my storage isn't near full however.
