View AFU and file transfer progress

You can view basic Automatic File Upload (AFU) and file transfer information from Pearl-2's touch screen or using the Admin panel. Information like how many files are in the queue, the total size of the queue, the AFU type, and status are shown.

In this example, AFU is scheduled to occur at specified time intervals so the start of the next scheduled file transfer is shown.

If the Pearl-2 is configured to allow copying recordings to a connected USB drive instead of AFU, the USB drive status displays. If AFU is not enabled, the screen displays AFU File upload is disabled.

The Admin panel displays a history of uploaded files, which persists until either Pearl-2 is restarted or the list is manually cleared. You can also cancel file uploads manually using the Admin panel.

For more information, see Manage the AFU queue and Manage USB file transfer queue
