What does Storage Manager do on /e/OS?

In Settings > Storage > Storage manager there is an option to turn on “Storage manager”. Since there is no Google on this phone, does this functionality now work with the /e/ cloud storage instead of Google Drive or Google Photos? Does it work when you self host cloud storage? What are the requirements to make this work?

Even then, there is confusion about what this option actually does.

I see it’s on by default. Am I at least to understand it will not delete anything if it is not backed up?

Yeah, great question!

I have no idea if I should enable this or not with my self-hosted NextCloud.

According to storage manager on my eOS phone (tap hamburger menu to see description): ON will delete photos and videos after 90 days
