What gets deleted first?

I haven't been able to find a solid answer on this yet, but what gets deleted first? If I leave Time-based Purging off, and the HDD fills up, does it just replace the oldest recordings? Or will Protect keep the motion events and just delete the inbetween "dead" recordings?

Protect will remove the oldest recordings first. It's unable to distinguish between motion or non-motion events since the events themselves are just references to the 24/7 timelapse.
