My company is currently using a 32 Channel Ultimate Series DVR. We would like to backup the DVR over the network. I looked through the manual (http://support.techprosecurity.....Manual.pdf), and it mentions in section 4.7 (Backup) that, "You can refer to Chapter 7 Web Client Operation for network download backup operation."
I can't seem to find this in Chapter 7, can anyone please assist me with where to find instructions on how to do this?
There are actually a few ways you can back up over a network.
1. One of the ways is to use the our TechProSS Client software. If you are using that software the third button on the bottom of the application says "Playback" and from there you can set the date and time you would like to play back, then click the TO AVI button in order to save it. There are other ways as well in this application.

2. From the web service, you can go to the search function, put in a time and date, and once you pull up all the clips within that time span you can choose to download the DAV files you would like to save remotely. Then use our free File Player which you can get from our Downloads page to watch it back and/or convert it to AVI. This is page #147 on the Manual you have linked above.

3. The paid version of the mobile app allows playback of the footage remotely, however, I'm not 100% sure whether or not it'll allow you to back it up from there. One of our tech guys can probably elaborate on this.
Which way are you connecting to your DVR? I can give you more detailed information if needed.

You should then install the client software in the WS2K12 Box and create a Record plan for each of the channels you would like to have a backup of.. Point the Record File path in the client software to any other drives in that server rather than the default. Point System Center 2012 DPM Software to backup those files in the path you specify on the client software...
