Re: Snapshots rather than Motion & Over Allocation Errors

Hi Tim It happened again. I'm thinking maybe my E:\stored external drive is not long for this world :( This morning it was turned off and I'm having trouble reading it. If this is the reason, although not happy that I may have to layout more money, but at least I know why BI was over allocating :) T...

Snapshots rather than Motion & Over Allocation Errors

The first thing I noticed was that rather than recording motion, when I reviewed activity rather than being videos, all content was as jpg files. S...

I installed both the x86 and...

External Drive Recommendation

Hi

I’m looking to purchase a new external hard drive to store BI footage onto. Are there any recommendations on what I should look for? Am thinking 4-6TB.

Thanks in advance 😊
