DIVA Administration

How to manage your system and keep it running smoothly.

Create a drive

The following diagram identifies the DIVA drives that can be added to a particular volume.

Drives & volumes
Drives & volumes

If the volume is assigned to an Avid Pool, DIVA drives of any type (Basic, Media & Project) can be added to it. If the volume is assigned to a Basic Pool, only Basic Drives can be added to the volume.

Note: These drives are not physical storage devices; they are virtual drives that reside on the volume (storage device). When mounted by a user on a Windows PC, the drive is assigned a drive number.

Note: On Basic drives and projects drives, using Avid, you cannot create Avid MXF files.

Note: You can only add a Project drive to a media or projects volume if it is permitted for that volume. To permit or prevent project drives from being added to a volume, see Allow Avid Project drives on a volume.
