Saving to an external hard drive

Consider using an external hard drive if....

  • You are importing your files uncompressed, they are huge and can be nearly 13GB per tape (vs 1.3 GB for a compressed tape)
  • You importing using our compression but have more than 20 tapes, this will be more than 25GB of storage.

NOTE:  If you "move" the files from your computer to a external hard drive after import, LifeFlix will lose connection to the files and not be able to play them.  The files will not be lost and can be played using Quicktime but they won't appear inside the LifeFlix catalog.

Watch video

By default, LifeFlix saves all video files to your computer's hard drive, or specifically in your Username/Movies/LifeFlix folder. If you'd prefer to save to an external hard drive, or change the computer destination folder, use the option called "Change Video Folder" under the LifeFlix menu. 

 
 
 
Then click "Choose." 
 
 
 
 
After changing the file destination, click the blue Import button and see the memories pour in!
