Formatting a USB Key


Erase Media
The erase media feature allows you to erase and format media for use with the HVR. Although media can be formatted on a PC, Pelco recommends that the media be formatted on the HVR to ensure optimal equipment function. The HVR does not support a weekly or daily backup to CD/DVD media. If you try to format a CD or DVD when the unit is configured for a weekly or daily backup, a warning message appears.

To erase or format media data:

  1. Connect or insert the backup media.
  2. From the System menu, click the Backup submenu.
  3. Set schedule to Instant
  4. In the Device Field Select The USB  Device
  5. Click Erase Media.
  6. Click OK.
  7. Click OK again after the media is formatted.
  8. Click Close.
