D32 PRO File System Size

Post by jamonda » Thu Jul 30, 2020 8:50 pm

Hi, friends.
I have a Lolin D32 Pro with 16MB of flash memory. However, my file system size is only 2 MB .
Has anybody here managed to use all the board's memory with MicroPython? Can you show me how?
Thank you!

Hopefully someone who knows more about ESP32 can reply but I think you need to build your own firmware and set the size of the VFS partition in partitions.csv. But I'm not sure if there are other considerations.

It's the same thing as -- viewtopic.php?f=2&t=7655&p=43644

I followed the instructions from the link, put 0xE00000 (14MB starting at 0x200000) at the end of the last line of partitions.csv and got this:

"File System Size 10,485,760 - Free Space 10,469,376"

My question now: if MicroPython uses 2 MB, is it correct to say that some memory is missing?
