I have a NodeMCU ESP8266 ESP-12E and I tried uploading a file thru the SPIFFS. I am not sure why I see OTA instead of the SPIFFS?


Is there a configuration that I missed?


SPIFFS (SPI Flash File System) is also know as FS(File system) . so What you are seeing as FS is basically SPIFFS .The OTA partition on esp8266 is compulsory so you cant get rid of it .

Hope this helps
