Understanding the folder list

The Folder list displays the hierarchy of folders on the IP VCR. Folders are used to group stored recordings together in a convenient manner. Stored recordings are one of:

To view the Folder list, go to Recordings > Folders.

The Expand all button displays the entire folder tree. This also displays recordings stored physically on the IP VCR inside the folders. Externally stored recordings are not displayed in the Folder list; they are displayed in the Recording list.

The Collapse all button causes the display to show the folder hierarchy without recordings listed. Click the 'plus' sign (+) on individual folders, to show the recordings stored in that folder.

Each folder can contain multiple recordings and sub folders. Next to each folder name in the Folder list, the number of recordings in that folder is displayed. For folders that are linked to external storage locations, the number of externally stored recordings is also listed and in this case the number of recordings in the folder includes the number of externally stored recordings (that is, the number of recordings in the folder is the total number of recordings in the folder).

The folder structure is browsable in the Recordings list (go to Recordings > Recording list), and by an H.323 endpoint user calling the IP VCR using an auto attendant. Each folder will appear as a separate auto attendant. If you assign auto attendant IDs to folders, H.323 users will be able to connect directly to that folder.

If you assign Numeric IDs to recordings, the recordings can then be registered with an H.323 gatekeeper and/or a SIP registrar enabling users to directly dial a recording. Note that externally stored recordings cannot currently be accessed via a SIP registrar.

You can create up to 50 folders on the IP VCR.

You can create recordings directly into a particular folder, by assigning a folder with a Recording ID and using a gatekeeper. For more information about recording IDs, refer to Adding and updating folders.

Moving recordings and folders

To move a recording stored on the IP VCR or a folder:

  1. Go to Recordings > Folders.
  2. Drag the recording or folder to the destination folder.

Note that only internally stored recordings can be moved in this way.

Deleting folders

To delete a folder:

  1. Go to Recordings > Folders.
  2. Click the delete folder link next to the name of the folder that you want to delete.

Note that when you delete a folder, any recordings stored on the IP VCR inside the folder are moved to the top level folder and are not themselves deleted. (Note that any externally stored recordings inside a folder that you delete will not be deleted; they will not become associated with any other folder, but will remain in the NFS location.)

Note that when you delete a folder, any sub folders of that folder are moved to the top-level folder and are not themselves deleted.
