Visual Re:discovery White Papers
A well-planned approach to digital image management makes it easier to manage images and to attach them to records.
Also, over time users will most likely improve computer and network setups, and a good plan makes the transition simpler.
See our White Paper,
Planning Digital Image Management , before beginning a digital image project.
Network File Permissions
The network administrator can establish file permissions that help protect the Re:discovery system and collection data from accidental deletion.
We recommend the arrangement below. It will be important for all users to be off the Re:discovery system when these permissions are assigned.
See our White Paper, File Permissions , for assistance with establishing permissions on a network.
Backing up Re:discovery
Back up the entire Re:discovery system periodically, and backup your client folder (where the data files live) on a daily basis during periods of actively adding and/or modifying data. See our White Paper System Backups for assistance in creating backups of your Re:discovery data.
If the Re:discovery system is installed on a network, please make sure the network administrator includes Re:discovery data in any scheduled incremental or full-system backup. When running Re:discovery on a stand-alone system, Re:discovery's Data Backup Control utility provides multiple options to create a backup. For example, the #9 Backup option creates a zipped file of a user specified directory.
No matter which option or method used, don't be lulled into a false sense of security simply because you have backed up your data. The ability to restore the data must also be checked frequently!
