If you to supply the drive we prefer it to be empty (you can supply it to us with files on it, however we take NO responsibility for any loss or corruption to those files).Please ensure you supply the USB cable and power pack if it has one.You need 15 gigabytes per hour of footage. So for 10 hours of video footage you would need a 150 gigabytes of free space.The Drive you supply needs to be empty or formatted as NTFS (Microsoft Windows) or HFS (Apple Macs).If it is formatted as FAT32 we will need to erase and reformat it, so make sure the drive is empty.
