Keeping up with files.

My old TDS Data collector would get cleaned out about once every 2-4 yrs. It did not run slower, when half full.
So, how are you keeping up with all your JAVAD JOB files?

I can backup the LS on a usb stick. But, generally, there are about 10 jobs that stay on the LS. They get added to every month or so.

Anyway, how are you keeping up with all your LS jobs?

Thanks,

Nate

I'm thinking to get 12 USB thumb drives. Maybe 64 GB. And, label them by the months of the year. Then, backup the LS once a month.
Then, combine all 12 of these files on the Hard Drive.
I'm thinking about it. Thumb drives have gotten cheap. 5 of them, cost around 50$
What do you think?

We export the full files (to include archive) to a Dropbox at the end of the day. We then transfer the JAVAD files to our normal workflow and archiving system. We make efforts to delete the files from the unit when we process and export (Everyone is better at this than I am,). We start a new (dated) job in the unit each day. We have found that this system helps us avoid carrying tooo much data in the field unit and avoids overwrites and conflict. We make efforts to not carry completed jobs in our field unit.

This system would be greatly enhanced and helped if we could obtain emulator software software from JAVAD. I still think it is one of the only shortcomings of the JAVAD system that we must pull a production unit out of the field to process, evaluate and manipulated data.

OK, I bought 2 USB sticks. 128 GB. I'm transfering ALL my backups to one disk.
What is the MAX size of USB stick I can use with the LS?
Thank you,
Nate
