how big is your microsd card?

some rough calcs show, that even at 5kb per tile, to get the entire
country you're going to need a 5TB card for zooms 5-18, to store a
billion files

this may be helped by the suggestions elsewhere of using one copy of
the blank land/sea tiles, and linking to it, but not a huge amount

are you sure you need all those tiles?
