      1. All previously recorded data (video, audio, text, alarms etc.) will be accessible after the DVMS update.

    2. Use File System V8/V9 and remove old data - old storage will be erased and formatted to a new File System format. All previously recorded data is lost.

    3. Use File System​ V8/V9 and leave old data - old storage will be left as is, but DVMS will be configured to use a new File System format.

      1. This is useful if there is some additional disk that can be used for new data, and there is some need to keep old storage for some time to access previously recorded data.
