    Should I be worried about:

    Only 287 MB of free space left on the device! Have you already expanded the filesystem?

    I can login via ssh and see the following:

    So, seems that the primary partition size of 3.4Gb is consumed by whatever is part of the max2play image. Can I remove stuff to free up space (use apt for example) or is there a max2play UI way to do this?

    Or do I even need to worry?

    Thanks.

    Hi gstalnaker,
    Have you expanded your filesystem (“expand filesystem” button under Settings/Reboot)? If not, we would recommend doing so.

    Yes, there was an initial expansion early on in the installation process. The warning above is a current warning.
