Duplicated files/folders

Post by jack52251 » Wed Nov 21, 2018 12:17 am

Hi All,

I have an issue with ZM. I installed a fresh docker container under unraid, configured my 5 cameras (DLink) and they all work fine. The issue is that under the data folder, it lists folders 1-5 and then a folder for each of the cameras. When there is an event, it saves .jpg files to both locations. I tried the video option, but the video is very wonky for me and I end up with a video that is unusable, so I went back to .jpgs.

Here is a picture:

It's not really in both locations -- if you look closely you should see that the numbered directories are real, and the "named" directories are symbolic links to them (for convenience/user friendly use).

You may find the same if you start poking about inside the directories, a folder called ".12345678" (enable viewing all files including dot files) is a symbolic link to another folder with the hh/mm/ss of the event, e.g. 16/02/24 ...

On console "ls -la" shows ...

Code: Select all
