Previous Success / Fail
Confirming Previous Backup Result on LCD
During a "Copying, Verifying, or Syncing" process, if the copying process was interrupted in case of a bad memory card (or bad internal disk) it will be difficult to determine whether all data was safely copied. In such cases, ND2901 displays results of the previous operation in the next power up on the LCD to prevent accidental data loss.
Format internal disk
ND2901 provides “HDD Format” tools without aid of a computer. ND2901 will ask you to confirm it twice before the format function is triggered, to prevent accidental formatting of the HDD. (Caution: Formatting destroys all data on the drive. Back up any data that you want to keep to another drive)
ND2901 provides "SELF TEST" diagnostic tools. With this, you can easily and quickly test the internal disk and external USB device (external USB drive / USB memory card reader).
If errors are found backup data immediately and replace the bad drive with new drive or consult with a data recovery professional.
Short Drive Self Test
Collects S.M.A.R.T. data from a hard drive and quickly detects whether ND2901’s internal disk is defective.
Full Drive Self Test
Performs a deep scan of a selected disk (or a card) to detect bad sectors.
Delete TMP Folder
Delete TMP folder
During the copy process, if the user stopped the process or is interrupted by disk (or card) errors, then ND2901 moves those orphan files to a temporary folder (“TMP”) automatically. These files are incomplete therefore we recommend deleting them to save disk space.
