1 - Change default folder

By default the folder is on the external storage and will be removed when Ornithopedia is removed. Changing this folder to another locations means you have to delete this new folder yourself if you remove Ornithopedia. Changing the folder will also delete the folder, this will cause all files and modules contained within that old folder to be removed. More about this: Howto: Use your own resources.

Press the button and the bottom to use the currently shown folder to contain a new '.Ornithopedia' folder

Clicking this will calculate the amount of space used by streaming sounds that have been downloaded (excluding the sound modules). You then have the choice to remove all of them by clicking "Clear All".
