My BI PC currently on starting up also starts BI running in the background, this is very helpful for updating the PC remotely and not worrying about starting BI manually.
Now windows 11 has shown as a potential update but it will not install without secure boot turned on. Can I turn...
Thanks @TVille , the files I need are 1.77GB (one hour blocks). But with the 8TB WD Purple having used just about 1TB allocated free space (due to my clips and archive error), I remain hopeful.
Still running the Wondershare Recoverit software but not found anything new yet.
Thanks guys, police should have the equipment. But I am running Wondershare's Recoverit now. So far it has found existing files only @user8963.
Police have been told they need a tech expert but they are not ringing me back to provide one to look so I am trying before it gets definitely...
I am so annoyed with myself, I have my BI Clips and Archiving set to delete (not move) at 100GB on a 8TB WD Purple. Stupidity at minimum. Especially with continuous recording set.
Then I get the call from local police to say there was a serious assault and I cannot find the footage...
Thanks @wittaj I will consider this if I add more cameras, I have been thinking of using some old 2MP starlights since they're just on a shelf. Meanwhile, I think I will leave the FPS and bitrates. It is a dedicated system and I might as well have the best I can get footage wise.

As a little tip for anyone reading in future, whilst setting up Sub Stream, I had 4 cameras to deal with.
2 cameras worked with sub stream straight away and 2 did not.
Simpke fix was to delete the 2 that did...
Maybe I was mistaken in the "updated comment", but the BDL2-WP12G is not available in UK. We have ISC-BPR2-WP12. I think your model is for US, Canada, China & Russia. Perhaps it is because of 240V in UK, I don't know.
Thank you again. I have managed to obtain 5.2.7 and the first part of sub stream asks you to ensure direct to disk recording is on. It wasn't for 2 cameras.
This has already lowered CPU usage.
It is very late and I'll have to continue this another day now but I really appreciate you help.
Ah, it was release 5.2.7 version and I'm running 188.8.131.52
That may be why I don't know it.
I love BI, but since I found it, I have bought 3 systems and it gets expensive keeping topping up latest software, so I haven't got the latest version unfortunately.
