# Show that USB drives have the same storage constraints as SD cards.
# 
# In the following:
#     /storage/5C3D-EB80 is an attached USB flashdrive
#     /storage/6C2A-1618 is the phone's removable microSD card
#     /sdcard is the phone's internal storage (a.k.a shared)
# 
# Tests here are run in Termux, and assume it has already been granted
# extra storage permissions by running its "termux-setup-storage" tool.
