    I have a bolt that shows 62% used. I always check on the "Going Away soon list" to catch up on shows that will be deleted soon. It always has shown a logical date list as to when the shows are going to be deleted (Today, Tomorrow, Monday, etc.).
    A couple of days ago the list was huge. there were pages of "Today" with entries from movies and shows that had been marked as 'Keep until I delete". I started going one by one and again mark them as 'Keep until I delete". This got tedious after awhile, so I went to the "Recently deleted recordings" and started to permanently delete several shows. Although the % went down to 50, there were still many pages of "Going Away Today" shows. I restarted the Bolt, thinking that maybe the Bolt needed a restart to reset the storage count. The restart did not fix it. It was still showing pages of Going Away Today" shows. I kept permanently deleting shows and eventually the list went down to only one page as before.
    Does anyone know why this happened? Would it happen again? Thank you. Click.

    Your use of KUID is what is causing the exponential growth in yellow "going away soon" entries.
    You can safely ignore "going away soon" it won't delete them until you get to much higher disk use.
    I've had yellow dot programs for years, it will delete things like suggestions first if you enable them as a safety net to see how close you are.

    Here's some tips. System Information item has no relationship to file deletion. In My Shows, the % shown is how close you are to having programs moved to Recently Deleted folder. The Recently Delete folder is not sorted and kills programs when physical space is needed. "Keep Until" is a variable, and moves every day for programs in My Shows. If you set "Keep At Most:" to "All", you will never see a yellow dot but it's not retroactive. Programs in Recently Deleted folder are not used in any space or use calculation. Previous items are from a Roamio. A Bolt may be different. Please feel free to ask for clarification.

    There is not enough hours in the day to watch everything.
    Tivo dvrs every day find new things of interest to make a copy of today.
    I delete old news programs. And every so often go thru the "my shows" and delete some of the old "keep-until-I-delete" items at the bottom of the list.

    Thank you. Although I've heard of KUID, I don't have it or have used it.

    KUID = Keep until I delete

    I think the item you've never had or used is KMTTG, different things.
