What is the recommended usb size and usb format for Base Station for Arlo, Arlo Pro, Arlo Pro 2 (VMB4000)? 


If i were to insert say a 128gb or 256gb or 500gb usb 2.0 into the usb port of the Base station, how much and how long on average (for ex, a few days, a week, two weeks, three weeks, a month, two months, etc) will it record before its full or starts to erase to add more?


Thank you for your help.

You can go as high as 2TB.

The time til it gets full is solely dependent on how many recordings you have each day and how many cameras you have. Given each recording length is dependent on what's going on in the frame, there's no way to answer your question with any kind of accuracy. I'm just using a 32GB USB thumb drive and it's months and months before it's even close to full
