SD Card Memory Partitioning (Thinkware F750/F770)

Premium Dashcams like the Thinkware F770 organize videos by different file types so that events can be located more easily and card space can be prioritized differently. Continuous recording is the file type that most dashcam users are familiar with, this is your normal driving footage which takes up most of your memory card space with the Thinkware dashcams. There is also parking motion which applies only to hardwired dashcams and would comprise of files where the motion sensor was triggered albeit without any physical shocks. Then there are incident modes for both parking and continuous recording which are video clips where the G-sensor was triggered by a shock/impact. Lastly there is manual recording which is where the user physically presses the "REC" button on the camera.

Loop recording will take place within each of these folders meaning the oldest clip will be deleted to make room for the newest clip. Because the card is partitioned into these separate folders though, you don't have to worry about a regular driving video overwriting an incident clip. This is important, particular for parking mode as the driver may not notice that their car has been damaged until several days later and with other dashcams such as the BlackVue cameras which don't use partitioning, the footage would be long gone after a day or two.
