Question

How can I back up or delete images or video stored by my X10 software? Where are these images stored? How big are they?

Answer

By default, X10 camera software saves data to C:\My Images. You can copy this folder to a CD-R or other backup media. If you rename or delete this folder, there will be no stored pictures or video on display when you reopen your X10 camera software.

You can change the storage location in the Options-General tab:

At default settings, recording in Vanguard should take about one gigabyte per hour. Still images will be about 50 kilobytes.

Important Note

By default, Vanguard saves video in a format that can only be played back in the Vanguard software. To change this, go into Options-Video Rec and select Record in Standard AVI format.
