So pretty much I had a Adafruit Feather 32u4 Adalogger with a 10 DOF sensor in it. I put it in a rocket and launched it off. I couldn't find the top part yet and it is probably still logging data. What happens when the 2 GB SD card can't store any more data. Will it overwrite or will is just stop recording?

Thanks,

It will fail to write.

Supplementary question: is there an absolute maximum size of microSD that the Arduino SD readers and associated library can handle? If so, what happens if you use a card that's too big? Does it use up to where it "understands" or just not work at all, or what?
