Okay, it seems as long as I will have a mobile device along it will work. Not ideal in the field, but workable. I tried doing manual moves by selecting all of the folders on the SD card and then moving them to a new folder on the Storage. After I created a new folder I would get an error message and had to go back one folder level and then back in to the newly named folder, I was then able to successfully copy over all of the files. However, there is no status of when this function is complete. For a really full SD card, it would be good to see a status. So this isn’t the best option I found.
With auto copy turned off, I instead inserted the card and pressed the copy button, the system then copied all of the files in to the SD Card Imports folder. I then renamed the SD Card Imports folder and initiated the copy process again. I did this multiple times. So it does seem that this is really the only workable solution when you are working with a single SD card that you will be filling and reformatting multiple times.
I really wish there were an easier way. I can understand the current backup functionality when backing up computer files to the drive as you want to retain prior versions of a file. However, it doesn’t work well for the photographer or videographer in the field trying to unload SD cards to the drive to format and use again. SD cards are cheap enough and small enough that for a photographer, using multiple SD cards is perhaps the easiest method, however for someone shooting HD or even 4K video, using a laptop or MPWP is really the only workable solution. So I guess we will have to use the work around of renaming the SD Card Imports folder to make this usable.
