How to solve storage issues

How does storage work in Curiosity?

Curiosity's storage system is designed to scale with the amount of data you work with. Since the app indexes your connected data, the required storage space will depend on several factors:

Volume of Data: The more data you have to index, the more storage space you'll need.
Number of Connected Apps/Folders: The same applies here. More connected apps means more storage is needed.
File Sizes: Larger files take up more space, so if you're dealing with high-resolution scans, videos, or lengthy documents, this will impact storage requirements.
AI Search: When AI Search is enabled, it will re-index all your data for semantic search, vector search, or neural search. That might take some time and involve heavy computing.
