Today, some applications were reject starting, and the OS notified me that it is running out of memory. AIDA64 showed 10 MB available memory, and I saw the same figure even just after reboot, with no other apps launched. I decided to move to PC all videos (2,5 Gbytes in total), as a result, the internal storage has increased from 200 to 2100 Mb, and available memory - from 10 to 870 Mb.

It seems that some videos were stored in RAM.

After transferring, I have discovered that some of my videos are 1513 bytes long, and some others are less than 1 Mb. All of them are broken. It seems that the OS cuts off some video files when memory is not enough. Is that a bug or a feature?

check .recording subfolder inside Video, it contains video buffer. Most likely you can repair recorded video from there.

Thank you for your answer. I don’t see the '.recording' subfolder in the 'Videos' folder, only 'Camera' and 'Default' are present.

I have found the '.recording' subfolder in the 'Camera' folder, but it is empty.
