    This year I am running an on-board camera on my trucks while plowing. This is for liability issues mainly. For those of you that do this, how do you store the downloaded files and for how long do you keep them? It seems the files are about 32 gig for a 10 hour shift.

    I do not have anything like this but if your files are 32GB a 1TB(1024GB) hard drive would hold 32 10 hour shifts.

    Save them until the next season starts or buy a new external hard drive every year for $100 or so.

    considering it can sometime take a few years for slip and falls to come into light I would be buying a new external hard drive every year.

    Hey plowmeister, your signature is pretty funny, especially since you misspelled "your". It should be "you're". Stupid is a funny thing.

    That would explain why my life is so tough.

    I'm glad you got my humor. I wasn't trying to be mean.
