D) Maintenance of the local storage device
A local storage device refers to any storage device(s) connected to the eSync DVR, such as the internal
hard disk drive(s), USB2.0 device(s), and other device(s) connected to the IEEE1394 port. Local storage
types include {New}, {Direct}, and {Backup}. The functions are as follows:
New: The administrator can manage all initially detected storages. All initially detected storages are
displayed as New and can be changed into Storage or Backup.
{Direct Initialize}:
Changes the selected storage into a dedicated direct storage
{Backup Initialize}: Changes the selected storage into a backup storage
{New}
At least one storage device needs to be selected as a dedicated storage.
Otherwise, the data cannot be stored in real time.
Direct: The administrator can manage direct storages. A direct storage stores data on the hard disk in
real time. Five commands can be initiated on the storage devices. Depending on the S/W status,
however, some commands cannot be initiated.
{New}:
{Online}:
{Offline}:
{Format}:
{Eject}:
Returns the status of the selected storage device to New; if this command is,
the selected storage device will be moved to the {New} storage device manager
Changes the selected storage device in online state
Changes the selected storage device in offline state
Formats the selected storage
Separates the selected device completely from the software
Physical states supporting the execution of the commands above include Healthy and Warning. In the
fault state, however, no command can be initiated.
When removing a device installed in the DVR, USB, or storage connected to the IEEE1394
port, the user shall run the {Eject} command
Backup
The administrator can manage backup storages. Backup storages are permitted for data backup, not used
for current recording files. The user can run only the {New} command.
Depending on the storage type, the storage can be used only for either direct or backup.
E) Configuration of the local storage device
1. {Model}:
Model name of the storage device
2. {Serial}:
Serial number of the storage device (May not be compatiable with some devices)
3. {Location}:
Physical location of the storage device
4. {Capacity (T/F)}:
Storage device capacity (T: Total; F: Free)
5. {Status (SW/HW)}: Storage device status (SW: Software; HW: Hardware)
There are three software status types:
Active:
Online:
Offline:
Connected to DVR and currently saving the data
Only connected to storage or backup device
Not connected to storage or backup device
There are three hardware status types:
Healthy: Connected to storage or backup device; functions normally
Warning: Connected to storage or backup device, but error was detected
(for more information, see the description below).
Fault:
Not connected to storage or backup device; cannot perform data saving or backup
Revision A

System Setup
Fault state: The storage device is completely damaged, and none of the S/W operations can be
performed. The fault state is not related to a DVR problem. The DVR has detected the fault and stopped
the recording.
Warning state: The storage device has a physical error that will be notified by the DVR. Backing
up data in the corresponding storage device and replacing the defective device with a new device is
strongly recommended.
If there is an active storage device with a warning or a fault, a message is displayed on the upper left
part of the screen. To clear the warning message, the user will need to check the {Log} on the DVR.
F)
Operation after adding a local storage device
1. Connect power to the system and boot the system.
2. Select {Main Setup} {Storage} {Local} using the arrow keys and press the [Select] button.

4. Select a newly installed disk using the arrow keys and press the [Select] button and initialize the disk as
a {Direct} or a {Backup} disk. The following describes the method of setting a direct storage:
Selecting {Direct-Init} or {Backup-Init} may cause all data in the device to be erased.
While {Direct-Init} or {Backup-Init} is in progress, do not remove the device as it
may cause an error when detecting the device.
To use the external or portable storage device for system upgrade, set to {BackupInit} in the {New} item for {Main Setup} {Storage Device} {Local Storage Device
Management}.
When using USB2.0 storage device for the first time, a backup USB device will be
detected in the {New} category. Therefore, a USB device in the {New} category
must be set up as {Backup-Init} prior to use for backup. A USB device that has
already been initialized as {Backup} will not need to be configured again.
5.
{Direct} shows the status of the newly installed disk online.
G) Operation of the local storage device
