Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP)Mass data: The data acquisition and processing software VmDas creates rawdata on the local drive of the computer.
Every hour the software Easy2Sync copies the data to a local backup file structure.
Every 3 hours the software Easy2Sync synchronizes the backup data to the directory structure of the mass storage.
Attention: Deleting files in the directory structure of the mass storage will also delete these files in the backup file structure with the next synchronization run. But: As long as these files are not removed from the local rawdata drive these files will be copied again to the local backup file structure with the next backup run and to the directory structure of the mass storage with the next synchronization run.
