Recordings being deleted despite plenty of space.

Post by stevedh »

I have a recording space of 1.19TB that says Used 28% (336.00GB)
I have a camera setup with up to record sizes of 550GB Regular and 200Gb Event recordings.

Both event and regular recordings are being deleted

'Due to recording space [Space1] reached overwrite trigger threshold'

I looked at the folders in Space 1 and these are the size of their contents.

preallocate 881GB
NR 236GB
AR 99.8GB

The recording space is in a 1.49TB Thick Volume which under used capacity is showing 1.21/1.49 TB (81.21%)
Its overwrite threshold is set to 95%

My thoughts is that maybe the preallocate folder is causing problems, but bottom line I don't know what the problem is and how to fix it.

It could also be because something else is also using that thick volume hence why 1.21 is showing as being used, however even with that it is below that volumes trigger threshold.

Anyway any idea how I can get my cameras to make full use of their recording space.

thanks

Just a quick update.
Tried everything, well except editing the json file in the root of the recording space, which seems to be created when the space is created and then never changes so not sure of its purpose.

Anyway copied my recordings to another partition, deleted the recordings space, recreated a new one, copied the files back, re indexed, and now it seems to be working fine. won't know fully until the recordings hit the threshold, which looks to be in about 4 to 5 days.
