I recently purchased Blue Iris as a cheap alternative to my more expensive recording software. Reason for exploring an alternative monitoring/recording software package is my current software does not support h.264 and additional licenses are very expensive. Blue Iris is only $50 and supports all my current cameras as well as h.264.

Overall for $50 Blue Iris seems to be super great for my needs and I'm on the "learning curve" to fully understand and utilize it. It seems to support most if not all the functionality of my expensive monitoring/recording software, but I got more to learn.

My camera network consists of 12 Axis cameras. My video server PC is a high end i7 and has about 13 tbs of hard disk for recording my cameras. My current recording software configuration utilizes about 75% of the disk space across all my hard drives (i think I got 6 hard drives which I have setup for 2 cameras each drive for recording). When I configured Blue Iris i believe it will not allow me assign each camera to different hard drives for recording purposes. Can anyone with experience tell me how to assign each camera to a specific hard drive for recording purposes? I know I can assign different drives for the alerts db, new clips, etc, but these databases contain all the cameras in each database and can not be split (correct me if I am wrong.) and that is not what I really want.

Thank you in advance,

New Jersey
