SD Card not showing up in Disk Storage Analyzer/Filelight? What to do?

Both Disk Storage Analyzer and Filelight read my Steam Deck perfectly but not the SD card, would like to see what's taking up space on the SD card. Any suggestion is appreciated.

You need to give the apps in discussion permissions to access your SD card.

To allow Disk Storage Analyzer/Filelight to manage storage space on your SD card, you can follow these steps:

  1. Switch Steam Deck to Desktop mode.
  2. Open the Discover store and search for a program called Flatseal.
  3. Open Flatseal.
  4. Select Disk Storage Analyzer or Filelight from the left.
  5. Scroll down the panel at the right to Filesystem.
  6. Click the ( + ) button next to "Other files."
  7. Enter /run/media and hit Enter.
  8. Close Flatseal.

After the permission is changed, you need to restart your Steam Deck to make it work.
