What happens to the data on a 500 Series hard drive when I put it into a different DVR?

It acts the same as a 400 Series where all the video is cleared/erased. This occurs if you place the hard drive into a different DVR or re-name (i.e. change bus#).
Both of these actions will clear all the existing video/audio information.

The only exception is the 502/503/504 series DVR’s will append and not erase the data when moved between buses or re-named.

We apologize for any confusion this may cause, but it’s related to moving from an MS Windows embedded operating system to using a Linux operating system.
