I know it is 2:00 am and I am on the boards Actually I am studying so I took a break and looked online
Any Images you add to AW2000 are saved within the AW2000 folder "Images". Some users retain the original images somewhere else either on their hard drive or on an external drive somewhere. I do not. Once we add the images to AW2000 and the SD card gets full, we re-format the SD card.
In order to be sure you don't run into trouble losing data, always run a backup of your AW2000 program anytime you have worked in the database. I know some users only do a backup every few days or maybe once a week. I do a backup every single day. And I burn a hard copy (DVD) every other day. So if there should be a problem, I have a backup to my hard drive. In the very worse case scenario and my hard drives on my server would crash, I have a hard copy of the day before work.
Maintaining the original image on your hard drive takes up a lot of hard drive space. So I do not recommend retaining images on your hard drive. If you want to keep images, save them to an external drive or some other form of removable media so your computer hard drive stays clean.
And while we are on hard drives, you should do routine computer maintenance. Do a disk clean up, scan hard drive for errors and defrag once a week.
Does that help?
