and audio is stored. Search through this partition, then E (SAVE02), F
(SAVE03) , G (SAVE04) and H (SAVE05) until the required files are
located.
Files are named: TYP DATE TIME. ZIP
For example
SND-20052003-124600.ZIP

RFG-20052003-124615.ZIP
The date and time shows the time at which recording was started. The
Audio and Data files are saved in 60 second blocks, the Radar Capture
files are saved on completion of the frame grab, once every 15
seconds. Therefore the above examples will have recorded the data and
sound at on the 20/05/2003 and the Radar Frame Grab was recorded
12:46 and 15 seconds.
9. If the SAVE button was held on the VDR front panel then the required
files will have the file extension Filename.ZI~ instead of Filename.ZIP
10. Use the Copy / Paste commands to obtain the required data. Once
data has been copied to the laptop remove the Ethernet cable and
close the MEU door.
11. Provided the above procedure is followed the system will continue to
operate without being disturbed.
