Backup NEW folder to FTP

Post by numbbrrr » Mon Jun 21, 2021 1:37 pm

I have my ftp configured and tested it. I upgraded computer so I have to do some reconfiguring. How do I get the "NEW" folder to backup the camers every hour or so? There does not seem to be an option to set the time. Also is it easier to just go in the camera properties then the record menu and que it for backup there? I'm just looking for what most people do and what will backkup the cameras ASAP in case someone breaks in and steals my main computer box with all the footage.

I think we need clarification from support here. A few forum members were looking at ways to back up the "New" folder in case of theft of the BI5 pc. This included using hidden usb sticks, but we didn't think that would go well due to the memory cards wearing out. If it can be done with FTP that would be good.

I'm not sure what it IS backing up here though. Is it everything including "Stored" ? It would be very good to be able to only back up "New".

Just a thought. Maybe an easier approach, though more expensive.

Mirror the drive/SSD's you using for 'New' cabling them to either another desktop, or better yet, in a 'data safe' that would be bolted down somewhere near the BI desktop - maybe even through a wall.

That way, no additional copying. The hardware would mirror an exact copy.
