When acquiring data, in most circumstances, it’s more practical to record several smaller files as opposed to one very large file. Perhaps you want to record continuously, until an event occurs, without filling up your hard drive with useless information? WinDaq data acquisition software includes tools to automate these processes.
‘Open New File on Full’ and ‘Record Next File on Full’ allow you to record for a specified period of time, close the file, open a new file and begin recording again, automatically. Using this method, you could break down a 24 hour recording into two 12-hour files, three 8-hour files, etc. See the video below for step-by-step instructions.
