I have a 16 channel NVR with only 14 cameras connected. It is sort of a strange setup, with 4 different buildings that all have their own setup and they are connected to the main office where the NVR is over a point to milti-point wireless network. My problem is that I have 2 TB of memory and I have knocked the bandwidth usage down a lot by setting the record settings to CIF and 15 FPS and I still only get a week of recording time. I have used the calculator and with using CIF at 30 FPS I should be able to get a month of record time. I am sure there are things I do not understand about how to set this up. Any suggestions?

That Looks like you are recording the extra stream as well on those channels. Go in to the record options control and check to see if extra or sub-stream is recording. Also double check the drive has no errors on it that can reduce usable space as well.
