Some SMPTE OLC folders contained links to other SMPTE OLC documents or to online resources. During the creation of the SMPTE OLC backup these link were converted into files with the file name “link”. These “link” files contain the URL used on the SMPTE OLC system to point at the resource. An example is shown below.
Multiple link files were created if a SMPTE OLC folder contained multiple links. During the removal of the ID folders online one link file was taken out of the ID folders while the others remained. This was due to the same file name.
Conversion Process Documentation
Additional information was created during the conversion process:
- olc_archive_scrub_2020_12_15_log.txt: A file containing all Log messages from the conversion process.
- olc_archive_rename_2020-12-15_log.txt: A file containing information on a few files which were renamed.
- Olc_archive_md5_2020_12_15.txt: Contains MD5 hash for every file in the SMPTE OLC backup.
Most importantly, we do provide a report on the conversion process and every problem encountered. This report is provided as a text file called README-olc-transfer_2020-12-16.txt.
These files are all located in the “OLC Legacy Document Info” folder on the SMPTE SKN together with the previously mentioned files.
