The GNARBOX 2.0 SSD features several different Backup Settings that can be used depending on your workflow preferences. These settings can be configured within the Safekeep App, Selects App or using the On-Board Screen and Buttons.
To configure Backup Settings using Safekeep or Selects:
- From the Browser screen, navigate to the Settings page.
- Scroll down to view Backup Settings.
To configure Backup Settings using the On-Board Screen and Buttons:
- From the Home screen, press the Down button to access the Settings menu.
- Toggle down to Settings and press the Right button.
- Press the Right button again to access the Backup Settings menu.
- Here, you will see your Backup Settings options. To toggle a setting ON or OFF, use the Right button.
Here, you will see options such as MD5 Checksum, Smart Backup, and Flatten Folders.
MD5 Checksum provides you with a reliable way to verify the integrity of your files after a transfer. If toggled ON, the GNARBOX will run a checksum after every copy.
In the Safekeep App, the checksum verification is displayed in the Task Manager next to the related copy task. For on-board backups, a checksum verification indicator is displayed on the OLED screen as soon as the copy completes.
Smart Backup enables incremental backups. This means you can backup a card throughout a shoot and only copy new files that have not already been transferred.
Flatten Folders removes the default folder structure created by your camera and cleanly transfers the files.
Once Flatten Folders is toggled on, you also have the option to Folder by Extension, which automatically separates your transfer into folders based on their file extension. A good example of this would be for someone who shoots both photo and video on the same camera body. Choose Flatten Folders and Folder by Extension to have your files transfer into designated photo and video folders on import.
