How Do I Import and Export a Configuration File on a ProConnect Recorder?

This function exports most configuration options on the recorder to a file or to AvertX Connect. An exported file can then be imported as needed to restore the configuration options to the saved state, but the AvertX Connect account information is not exported and will therefore need to be manually configured upon import. 

Exporting to AvertX Connect restores configuration options to the saved state along with the AvertX Connect account information.  

This function is found on the ProConnect software in the Setup>Settings>General Settings menu:

To export recorder configuration settings: 

  1. Click Setup, and then click Settings
  2. In the General Settings tab, click Export
  3. When prompted, Save the exported configuration file. 

Note: In the ProConnect Web Interface, the default location to save the .dat archive file is in the Downloads folder. 


To import recorder configuration settings: 

  1. Click Setup, and then click Settings
  2. In the General Settings tab, Click Complete or Partial Import, and then click Select Import File. 
  • Select Complete Restore when restoring to the same recorder or a replacement recorder. 
  • Select Partial Restore when using a configuration file as a template for other recorders. Unique Camera Identifiers will not be copied. 
  1. Navigate to the desired file. 
  2. Click Import

Note Imports / exports can be performed on both locally and Web Interface. Local exports will require an attached USB storage device.
