The Journal Activity offers file storage and retrieval through the Sugar user interface. To view the Journal, click the Journal icon in the Frame, shown next to the View icons below.
Your XO can store a limited number of files on its 1 GB flash disk drive. You should maintain your XO so that it does not run out of storage space for new files. You can delete some items by using the Journal Activity.
To clear out space for more files:
You can use either an SD card or a USB storage device or drive to save and retrieve files externally.
An SD card (Secure Digital card) is a flat, rectangular plastic device about 3.2 cm by 2.4 cm (1 1/4" by 5/8"). They are also used in many digital cameras for photo storage. The XO has one SD card slot.
The easiest to use are USB storage Flash Drives (memory sticks). These are about the size of a pack of chewing gum. Certain brands have an onboard indicator light, showing when data is moving to or from the computer.
There are 3 ports on the XO that you can use with a USB flash drive. One is on the left of the screen, two are on the right. All are protected by the antennae when the XO is closed.
Move the pointer over the USB icon at the bottom of the Journal and click Unmount.
When the USB icon disappears, it is safe to remove the USB drive.
The SD card slot is underneath the screen, below the power button. You will need to rotate the screen counterclockwise to access this slot.
Move the pointer over the SD icon at the bottom of the Journal and click Unmount.
When the SD icon disappears, it is safe to remove the SD card. Push upwards on the card with your thumb and release to spring it from the slot.
