Instead of having BOINC Android use limited Internal Storage, I suggest an option to move the App Data to External SD.

BOINC is currently consuming 300+MB of my ~11GB Internal Storage, when I have a perfectly good 64GB SD card in my device.

Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact LTE (16GB)
Android 5.1.1 Lollipop

AFAIK there's a Android enforced security reason why only core memory is used and not an external SD. NativeBOINC allowed to change this, but it is not maintained and does not install on 5.0 and above.
