How to Set Primary Storage on the SeeSnake CS65xr & CS65x

Read this article to learn how to set primary storage on the RIDGID® SeeSnake®  CS65xr & CS65x  Wi-Fi enabled monitors.

What is primary storage?

The CS65xr/CS65x’s primary storage is the drive where open jobs are saved automatically. That means whenever your primary storage is inserted, all of your inspection media – your photos, PhotoTalk media, videos, and Autolog videos – is saved onto the drive without any extra work required.

What can I set as primary storage?

You can set the primary storage to be the CS65xr/CS65x’s internal SSD or an inserted USB drive instead. If you set a USB drive as primary storage, the CS65xr/CS65x remembers the USB after it has been removed and will recognize it as primary storage once it has been reinserted.

Option 1: How to Set Internal SSD as Primary Storage

  1.  Press the Job Manager key.
  2. Scroll down to Internal SSD Options and press the Select key.
  3. Scroll down to Save as primary storage and press the Select key.

Option 2: How to Set Inserted USB Drive as Primary Storage

  1.  Press the Job Manager key.
  2. Scroll down to USB Options for the USB  you want to use and press the Select key.
  3. Scroll down to Save as primary storage and press the Select key.

Additional Primary Storage Settings

Autodetect Primary Storage

By default, the CS65xr/CS65x autodetects the primary storage whenever it’s inserted. You can turn this setting off by opening the Job Manager, scrolling down to Job Settings, and changing Autodetect primary storage to No.

Change Minimum Drive Capacity of Primary Storage

When no primary storage is saved, the CS65xr/CS65x prompts you to save an inserted SSD or USB drive that meets the minimum drive capacity as primary storage. To change this setting, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Job Manager.
  2. Scroll down to Job Settings and press the Select key.
  3. Scroll down to Show advanced autodetect settings and press the Select key.
  4. Scroll down to Minimum drive capacity and press the Select key.
  5. Use the left and right arrow keys to choose the minimum drive capacity you want to use and press the Select key.

Note: The user interface displays an SSD icon for any inserted drive that meets the minimum drive capacity, including USB drives.
