You should not rely on it beeing there forever. In a future update we'll
provide middleware to handle SD-card related functionality (informing if
SD-card is present, and at which path, notify about removal, ...); until
then using the SD-card from your application is not officially
supported, and if you do use it, you need to take care of SD-card
discovery and error handling if the SD-card gets removed by yourself.

It will be enabled in a future update, we're currently testing that
