Thankyou Eileen, Marcus & Roger,
All my registrations are stored on HD1 So it is very important for me to back it up.
It is only during the last few days that realised that the Hard Drive was not backed up with the data backup
Since Eileen has recommended that we store registrations and Styles on the keyboard that I started doing just that, they all go on the Hard Drive (HD1 as it is called )
I have presumed the User Drive is different storage area, How big is that wonder ??
What do players save the user drive for ??
Again thankyou everyone,
The Tyros 5 User Drive is somewhere around 25-30 MBs. Very small, but sufficient with the original design of the first Tyros and carried over to the Tyros5. Designed mainly as a "working memory" area as you work, edit on individual files. Location where recorded or edited data is saved, such as the default location after saving a MIDI song, Audio Recording or saves from Style Creator etc. Usually by default, most saves are first directed to the User Drive, sometimes not allowing a save if full. So that drive can fill up quite fast.
Good habit when your file you are working on or editing is saved to the User Drive, transfer a copy to a Hard Drive folder to keep the User Drive from filling up. When you edit an Audio Style file in Style Creator, the User Drive is the only location where saves can be made. In my case, I edited many Audio Styles and keep them stored in the User Drive. Around 100 Style saves can fit on the User Drive, so I dedicate the User Drive for Audio Style saves only.
You can save your whole Tyros 5 Hard Drive to your computer, but most USB Drives have enough memory capacity as well to store your Tyros 5 Hard Drive contents. I use my USB drive to mirror my Hard Drive folders and contents, plus to sync data between my backup Tyros 5, I use on the road.
