Hello! I need to make a backup of all the media files in my DL2. I need all the pictures and videos in a dvd.
I have tried to make a backup using the Create content archive, but it creates a .DLC file. I need to be able to open the pictures and videos in other computers, so the .DLC file is no good.

Is it possible to make a back up of all the media files in the original format (.png, .jpg, ...)

Many thanks

    Hi Jordi,

    What exactly are your intentions with the back up as far as being able to open the files on another computer? The content archives on the DLs are intended to capture all of the media along with the DMX address mapping into a single file so it can easily be deployed on another server.

    In actuality, the .DLC file is just a ZIP file with a different extension. In fact, if you change .dlc to .zip you can browse through the contents of the file. However, if you do this, and then change the contents of the archive at all, you won't be able to re-deploy the archive on to a server as you have altered the file structure and the DMX mapping saved in the archive will no longer match the actual files in the archive.

    Best,

    Many thanks schiefels!

    I dont need to open the files in another server. Just need to open them in a regular computer, no DL2 involved.

    I will try to get the .DLC file and rename it to .ZIP to see if I can access to the files.

    Thanks Alot

    Hello again:

    I have tried to make the "Create Content archive", with the DL2 that we have, but always at some point it stops giving an error. I have tried it many times and form some reason it doesn't work.

    Is there any other way to copy all the media files in a DL2?
    Is there a way to copy only selected folders, and not all of them?

    Many THanks.

    I get always the same error: " Error ocurred while creating archive from Dl2"
