which software or hardware do I need to buy to get unlimited recording files?

I have DATAQ di-149 and the file size is limited to 4GB. I'm recording on all 8 channels at the maximum 1250 samples per second. 4GB files only give me 60 hours of recording which is very inconvenient between friday and monday because I lose 12 hours of data.

Armen,

Using the 'Open New File on Full' and 'Record New File on Full' features, you can configure WinDaq to record multiple files (one every 24 hours, for example), uninterrupted.

In addition to allowing you to record indefinitely (until your hard drive fills up), this reduces data loss in the event of a crash or power outage.

For instructions, see our blog post on the subject at:
