When DVR only uses one hard disk, the hard disk removed from one to another same type DVR can work normally without
format. However, when a DVR adds to a new hard disk, it will identify the hard disk as a new one and inquire whether to
format no matter whether this hard disk used or not in another same type DVR before. In this condition, it can be used
normally after formatted according to the guide; if two or more hard disks used in different DVRs, when used in another
DVR with the same type, they will be identified to be two or more new hard disks, and all of them need to format. In general,
please do not try using more disks removed from different DVRs into another one in case the data lose.

Calculate Recording Capacity
Users can calculate the size of hard disk according to the saving time and DVR recording settings. The DVR uses fixed
video bit rate. The below are the details at different settings.

The calculation format is:
Total Recording capacity =Used space per hour (MB/h)(coverage rate of hard disk) × recording time (hour)
×channel numbers
For instance, one customer uses PAL cameras, set resolution to CIF, video quality to Lowest, frame rate to 25 fps for
enabling total 16 channels. He wants the unit to record continuously in a month. Below is the calculation:
Total Recoding capacity =112.5 (mb/h) X 24(hours/day) X30(days) X16(channels)= 1296000(MB)= 1296(GB)
Therefore, customers just install one SATA HDD with 1000GB plus one SATA HDD with 320GB, it can almost record for
one month.
