My Hero 8 Black used to record only MP4 files. That was perfect.
Now, after a recent update, every video generates three separate files, MP4, .LRV and .THM?
Why? It didn't do this before. All I want are the MP4 files. The others are eating up space on the SD card!
I don't see anything in the "preferences" that would turn this off.
Help!

I dont know if its update related, but Gopros have had these 3 files for years now, its possible that you just havent noticed them because you were downloading them via app or something.
There is no way to disable this, these files are important for preview .
And :eating up space" is overexageration, its barely a fraction of the size of video file. Just get yourself a bigger card

I did not have these files before the camera was updated.
The camera broke and was sent in for repair. During the repair, the update
was done, and now I can't get rid of these files.
I already have a big card in there, 256 GB. "Eating up space" is NOT an exaggeration.
These files take up about ten percent of the used space on the card.
And I don't use an "app". I have ALWAYS downloaded directly to my computer using a USB cable.
Never had these files before. Certainly have 'em now.
