Question: Is it possible to connect an external hard drive (HDD) to a NUUO PC-based DVR, use it to record your surveillance video and then simply move the drive to another computer to view the recorded playback?
Answer: Yes this is possible, but you would first have to download the free trial version of the NUUO Surveillance Software on the secondary computer. You will not be able to download the same version because you must have a NUUO DVR capture card installed on the computer. Once you have downloaded the free version, connect your external HDD to the primary computer and follow these steps:
1. Open the NUUO Main Console
2. Go to Config > Setting
3. Click the "General" tab to view the directory (file path) in which NUUO is storing the recorded video files
4. Change the directory to point to your external HDD
Your NUUO surveillance system will now record to the external hard drive you have specified and you can move the drive freely between the two computers.
