FieldAgent Desktop - Using an External Hard Drive and Migrating Your FieldAgent Library

Some users find that throughout the course of a season, they run out of space on their PC for supporting the FieldAgent library.  It can take a significant amount of space to run and save our analytics. The good news is that the FieldAgent library can be migrated to another drive, saving valuable space on your PC. This article will walk through our recommendation for which external hard drive to use and the process for migrating your FieldAgent library.

Note: The external drive needs to be connected to PC for FieldAgent Desktop to work.

Our External Hard Drive Recommendation

While we do not manufacture or sell any external hard drives, our team has had the best success with this model. We recommend that you purchase at least the 1TB size. If you are planning to run lots of analytics throughout the course of the season, the 2TB version may work best for you. Please feel free to reach out to our team if you have specific questions about what amount of storage you will need.
