Recording Backup

Backup, also known as recording backup, is the process of querying video stored on a hard disk of the NVR and then saving to a USB storage device or a DVD-R disc as a file. In this article, we will cover How to Backup Recordings with Uniview NVR.

 

Recording backup has the following conditions:

  • Back up using a USB storage device: format the partition in FAT32 or NTFS format; connect the storage device correctly to the NVR.
  • Back up using a disc: use a GP65NB60 DVD burner. Make sure the DVD-R disc is empty, and the burner is correctly connected to the NVR. Permission is required.

The recording to back up is stored on a hard disk of the NVR.

Note: The default file format is .mp4 when you back up recordings to a USB storage device.

Note: When backing up using a disc, recordings are saved as .TS files only.

 

Normal Backup

1. Click Backup > Recording. All cameras are selected by default.

2. Set search conditions and then click Search. Search results are displayed.

Note: You can lock/unlock and play recording files in this window.

3. Select the desired recording(s) and then click Backup.

4. Select a partition.

 

Back up to USB storage device

Set the destination in the USB storage device and then click Backup. The recording(s) will be saved to the specified directory.

Note: You may want to create a new folder for the recording(s) by clicking New Folder.

Note: If the connected storage device has a capacity that is greater than 2T, clicking Format will format the device to NTFS file system; if the capacity is 2T or less, the device will be formatted to

FAT32 or NTFS. Only certain devices can format a storage device that has a greater capacity than 2T.

Note: A progress bar (e.g., Exporting X/Y) is displayed to indicate the progress, where X indicates the current number being backed up, and Y indicates the total number of recordings. To cancel

the operation, click Cancel.

Note: A backup file is named in this format: camera name-recording start time file extension. For example, Ch9-20150630183546.mp4.

 

 

Back up to a DVD-R disc

Set the destination and then click Backup. The recording(s) will be saved to the specified directory.

Note: Before you start burning, check that the video to back up was not compressed using U-Code.

Note: Clicking Cancel before burning is finished will cause the disc unusable.

Note: When burning is finished, wait for the drive to eject itself. Do not eject the drive manually.

Note: The NVR does not support playback of recordings saved on a disc.
