    My VU+ Zero 4k often shows me a message: "you are running out of free disk space at: /autofs/sda1" when I try to record some channel.

    But in fact /autofs/sda1 mounted as /media/hdd has 20 GB of free disk space (it's a USB flash drive). Any ideas/suggestions?

    20GB can sound like much but just one hour of 4K recording can be 22GB ;)
    And FullHD is about 6-7GB

    And also most images have a reserved space limit so at least 20% of the diskspace cant be filled up, this is to protect users so they want fill up the flashmemory in case they have done something wrong
    when they setup the recoding path, or if they dont have any external/internal device to save recordings to.

    So get your self a bigger storage device like an external HDD
