Can the Plex data storage location be changed

i have the Nvidia Shield tv 16gb (nov 2017) with plex media server built in, but i'm finding that with a large library connected externally and a 240gb ssd set up as internal storage...the plex media server doesn't save ALL it's information onto the 240gb instead it STILL uses the Nvidia shields 16gb which then fills up quickly and displays the low memory message. Can this location not be changed in order to avoid this warning?

    I was left with 1.5gb after plex added all it's data to the internal storage...so i think the only solution at the present time is to root the nvidia shield as per your link: https://forum.xda-developers.com/shield-tv/general/guide-t3692061 until nvidia and plex get there act together regarding not only the internal storage of plex info but the write/read folder issue when trying to move large video files across network to external storage. thank you for your reply "Strategizer8520 "
