Cause

Installing a new drive, upgrading storage, replacing a failed drive, or using a drive with backed up video for searching purposes.

Resolution

NOTE: Hard disk drives are installed in a specific order at the factory. When removing an HDD, be sure to label the drive to ensure that it is reinstalled in the same location.  Failure to do this will result in the DVR's failure to read any existing data on the drive.
