"I am missing video files in Viewlog, what should I do?"
Check under storage directory (default location is under C:/GVxxx) to verify that the video files are still on the hard drive.
If you cannot locate the video files from the storage location above, the video files may already got recycled or deleted. In this case, the files cannot be retrieved.
