Moving Video from SSD to Hard Disk
« on: April 02, 2023, 04:30:34 am »

Is there anything built into JRiver that allows video to be automatically moved from an SSD to a NAS or attached Hard Disk when the SSD is getting full? Previously I ran a scheduled batch file, but figured Iíd ask before creating another

Rename, Move, and Copy

But it's not automatic.

MC has a Scheduler.

The DevZone might give you something.  https://wiki.jriver.com/index.php/DevZone

Any reason not to tell MC to put the recordings where you want them?

I used to use MCE Buddy for this purpose with Windows Media Center. 

After a recording was finished, MCE Buddy would take the recorded wtv file, name it according to the metadata as series_name-season-episode-episode_name, and move it from the recording disk to a storage disk. 

MCE Buddy can also convert to H264 and remove commercials (and, in my case, half the show as well). I preferred to use Video Redo to remove commercials and Vidcoder (a GUI for Handbrake) to do the conversions.

It would be ideal to have Media Center do this, but if it proves too difficult, MCE Buddy might be worth a try.  Itís not as easy to use as it could be, though, and is no longer free. unfortunately.

Thanks for the replies, I figured they may be something included. I tell MC to record to the SSD as it allows me to record 4 channels at once and playback other things at the same time without glitches, and I donít see the point of moving things off the SSD ubtil itís running out of space. Back in the Windows 7 Media Center days I scheduled a batch file that used robocopy to move the oldest files after checking if space was getting tight.

I don't think you'd have any problems doing that on a hard disk drive.

Canít remember the data rate for 5 x 1080i streams, but it did glitch it a few years back. Itís the seek overhead on mechanical hard disks that used to cause problems. Hardware does improve though

That's roughly 7 GB / hour for five.

A hard disk can read and write on the order of 3 GB / minute.
