I am interested in My Screen Recorder Pro.

I want to have a few full days of capture that I start automatically from my application. I am going to use the command line to start My Screen Recorder Pro. I have a limit of 300GB of free space, how many days of recordings can I fit??

Two more questions:
1. Can I continuously record the screen for the full day?
2. Is there automatic way to delete old recordings?

I appreciate you assistance!

My Screen Recorder Pro can capture the screen continuously for a day. The size of the recording at the default settings is 540MB per hour, or 13GB per day.

While there is no function to delete older recordings, you can schedule a simple command line to delete older files. Here is a batch command to delete files on a Windows PC.

Forfiles -pC:\backup -s -m*.* -d-5 -c "cmd /c del /q @path"

This will delete all files in my backup directory older than 5 days. To test it first, use this:

Forfiles -pC:\backup -s -m*.* -d-5 -c "cmd /C Echo 0x22@Path\@File0x22"

This will print out each file that the command will be deleting.
