question

when a card is re-inserted a subsequent time after a previous backup has already been done, is the entire card backed up again, or in an incremental backup done strictly of new files not previously backed up previously? also, if the latter, how does it identify unique files that may possibly have similar name?ex. Session 1 using Card A ends with 20GB worth of files. I place that into the backup device and while that's backing up, I use Card B to shoot Session 2 using 10GB, I then pull Card A out, and backup Card B, continuing to shoot with Card A for Session 3 for 5GB. Re-insert Card A to the backup device. Do I end up with 35GB of backed up files, or 55GB (session 1 copied over twice)?

The Nexto DI ND2730G will not write the same files over again. It is designed to be able to take information from repeat cards and devices so you can continue shooting and backing up throughout the same session.

question

Can the backup be done by just connecting the camera itself to the product or does the memory card have to be removed from the camera and installed in the product. I ask this as I would prefer to just leave the memory card in the camera.
Asked by: Anonymous
To transfer files from the memory card to the NEXTO DI ND2730G Nexto Photo Storage Portable Backup Drive, you would have to remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into the NEXTO DI ND2730G Nexto Photo Storage Portable Backup Drive. The drive does not have a USB port for connecting the device to a camera; it only has a USB Mini B connection to connect the device to a computer to transfer files between the NEXTO DI ND2730G Nexto Photo Storage Portable Backup Drive and your computer.

question

Does this mean that my Lexar Pro 1000x, 16GB UDMA 7 CF card with download of 90mbs would not work on this machine? Thanks for your help. Namaste.....marney reed
Asked by: Anonymous
The 500GB HDD ND2730G Nexto Photo Storage Portable Backup Drive can transfer from a CF card up to 70MB/s and from a SD card up to 14MB/s. A card that is faster can work fine in the Nexto.This means if a card is slower it will not go any faster than the cards speed and if a card has a faster read speed then 70MB/s for a CF card or 14MB/s for a SD card it will not go any faster than those speeds as that is the fastest the Nexto can read/transfer.
