I have a Homeguard  2TB DVR which I have been running 8 Cameras from with no problems, recording for up 30 to Days.  I have had to install a new Hdd, and now the DVR is only recording for 24 hours, Can anyone advise how to get the new Hdd to record for longer please.

Thank you for the help, Yes a new hard drive was installed  ? but still only recording for 24 hours.

Ok we will forget the question on how did you format.

you have 2 threads and 3 posts (only recording 24hrs) so we know your problem. 

Is hard drive the same make and capacity as the one you removed and how did you format ?

Integrator , sorry for being so vague, the new Hdd was installed and supplied by a techi.

He said he was installing a 2TB like the original one, but I suspect only a 1TB has been fitted.

Hdd reads  total space =  "931gb"  Free space 818 gb . do not know how the techi  formated. he has returned 3 times to fix it but failed, he says it just needs configuring, but refuses to visit again, still only recording for 24 hours . could it be a faulty HDD ?.  MANY THANKS
