Arduino IDE | SPIFFS | Flash size missing

Hi everybody,
I'm currently learning about SPIFFS on ESP8266, so I have installed the plugin / add-on, included the 'FD.h", tried the code, and it works well.
Here is the problem, the Arduino IDE under Tool --> Flash Size is not giving me the option to choose the SPIFFS size like in the photo below

Instead, I'm getting the OTA (Over the air) options . . . .

Any ideas on why I can't see the SPIFFS settings ?

Additional question: If a want to delete all SPIFFS files from the memory, should I upload a new code with "no SPIFFS" selected ? I'm not talking about the delete method, like with the SD card module.

Many thanks ! <3

You're probably using an outdated version of the esp8266 boards platform. Please try this:

  1. Select Tools > Board > Boards Manager from the Arduino IDE’s menus.
  2. Wait for the update to finish.
  3. Scroll down through the list of available boards platforms until you see “esp8266 by ESP8266 Community”. Click on it.
  4. Click the Update button.
  5. Wait for the update to finish.
  6. Click the Close button.

Thanks @pert for the advice.

Lol, actually FS (file system) replaced SPIFFS, so what previously was 2MB SPIFFS - now is FS:2MB
