It is now possible to remotely format a HDD from the web browser interface of a LILIN NVR Touch.
On the NVR Touch firmware v1.0.46 - v1.0.48 the format option can be found under the 'System Status' menu with the NVR configuration screen and is active as default.
On firmware v1.0.54 this option is not available as default. You will now need to enable this option from within the NVR's local menu. This option can be found in the following location:
Click the 'Cog' in the top left of the live display, then select 'Setup', within the setup menu select 'System' and scroll down until you see 'HDD Info'. In HDD info you will see 'Enable Remote HDD Format'.
