    Hello, i have been lurking around the forum for awhile. Great source for information, since i am new to IP/security cameras. My current problem, the hard drive on my Milestone server crashed and i can't recover data from it. It only ran the operating system and the Milestone software, I saved all the video to another drive. I have installed a new drive for the operation system and got Milestone back running. My problem is i need to recover video from before the crash. I did copy the folder with the pre-crash video to a new folder on the same drive i am currently saving video to. I can not figure out how to view it though. I tried to copy the archived data to the new folder but it will not read it. Is there a way anybody knows of to tell the Xprotect Smart Client what directory to look at for data or am i missing something. Thanks
