How to Setup Storage for PC-NVR Recording

To begin setting up storage for PC-NVR recording, PC-NVR must be setup on your computer. For more information on how to setup PC-NVR recording, click here

Once PC-NVR has been setup on your computer, access the PC-NVR menu and navigate to the Disk Manager tab in the far-left corner of the screen.

Disk Manager will appear showing you a list of drives that could be used to allocate storage space for your cameras through Amcrest Surveillance Pro.

Select a disk you would wish to use for recording purposes, you may allocate as much space as you have available on the drive within its minimum and maximum allowance.

Once you’ve set a number between the possible storage sizes, click Allocate.

A prompt window will appear to warn you the allocation may take several minutes, and the application will restart after completion. Click OK to begin the allocation.

You will notice the disk you selected will now have the allocated space you selected, and at any point in time you can select Free to free up the space by wiping that allocation.

At the top of the Disk Manager window you can select what happens when the disk you’ve allocated gets full. Two options, Stop Record to end all recordings after the disk is full or Overwrite to continue to save over the oldest recorded data.

You’ve successfully turned your computer into a PC-NVR and have the camera recording any or all the motion events you have set up internally on the cameras main interface.
