Or is that HardlyWorking LOL!
He could also have copied the entire folder directly, without the HD Writer software, and it would still be able to register them
I'm not real sure if that is the case..I know that on my HTPC that does have the HD Writer Software, when I do look into the main Folder in "Windows Explorer"
that stores all of the individual sub Folders of Video shot per date, at the very bottom of all the Folders is the BDMV with Playlist folder structure that the HD Writer uses.
I have always let the HD Writer Software perform it's "Copy to PC Function" and let it add both the new Folders and the Directory Folders.
I have not tried to Copy and Paste (With HD Writer Off) the Folder structure from the Camcorder manually over the top of the Windows Explorer HD Writer Folder Structure.
I would be afraid that I would or could corrupt it if not performed perfectly and then ALL of my folders could Fail in HD Writer when it was opened and trying to Access the Folders.
Plus it's already on the computer so I might as well let it do it's own thing and not worry about it.
No Harm No Foul sort of thing.
But if there ever was a problem I would still have my Video files just not the use of the HD Writer.
I did Copy and Paste the Entire Folder Structure into a 2TB External Drive..
Meaning that when I went (In Windows Explorer) into "Library" then to "Videos" and then the Drop Down "My Videos" Folder (just like "My Pictures") I right clicked on "My Video" and just Copied it and then Pasted the Entire Video Folder intact into my WD 2TB External HDD.
I would then think that if I changed the referance point in my HD Writer Software as to where the Video and Pictures are Stored that the HD Writer Software would open them from,
the WD HDD the same as it now does from my "C" Drive. Because it is all the same..the only thing that would change is the Drive letter from "C" to "J" if you get my drift.
I will be trying this and see if there is a problem, If so I can just put HD Writer back to my C Drive.
Which I may need to do anyway because even though my C Drive is 1TB, I may need to start filling up my WD 2TB External with my TM-700 60P Files.
Right now ALL of my TM-700 60P Files are duplicated and kept on 3 Hard Drives.
Two 2TB WD Externals and one 1TB Internal HDD...Hopefully all 3 will not Crash at once!
I lost Video & Pictures once before, it will not happen again.
I am a strong believer of the old saying, "Fool me once, Shame on You! Fool me Twice, Shame on Me!"
Have a Great Weekend!
