    Editor’s Note: This request has now been marked as “Complete”.

     

    Thank you for your patience while we processed the request!

     

    The original file we received from Buncombe Co. Government is called SurveillanceFootage.zip. The file is very large, and even when broken down into subfiles, each file exceeds the size limit for documents and other media that can be uploaded to our site. Additionally, the files come with instructions for how to open / view the footage, which is a bit of a technical process to follow.

     

    These files have been provided to us from Buncombe County Government via their Accellion system – we logged into the system, downloaded the individual Subfiles (including the instructions for using the files), and have uploaded them to our own publicly accessible link on Google Drive at https://drive.google.com/open?id=1GoO__5aSrVFNyxJYI1JN04ytccjBuj0S.

     

    The original file (SurveillanceFootage.zip) “consists of 6 sub-files that need to be downloaded and concatenated to reconstruct the original file.”

     

    Subfile1.bin

    Subfile2.bin

    Subfile3.bin

    Subfile4.bin

    Subfile5.bin

    Subfile6.bin

     

    If the requestor or anyone in the community is interested in viewing the files, reformatting them etc, please follow the instructions (see screenshot) provided in Accellion.

    Hi Kassi,

     

    Following up again. We appreciate your help!

     

    Back in May we switched to a different computer and in the process lost the downloaded files before we were able to get them added to our site. Additionally, it is not simple to follow the instructions on Acellion to successfully open the files, but that’s something we’ll look into too.

     

    We reached out to you about this in the beginning of June, but did not hear back – Could you please resend us access to the “SurveillanceFootage.zip” you sent us through Acellion on May 16?

     

    Thank you so much!
    Have a good afternoon.

    Hi Kassi,

     

    Just following up on here to say that we appreciate your help! Since our last email, we switched to a different computer and in the process lost the downloaded files before we were able to get them added to our site. Additionally, it is not simple to follow the instructions on Acellion to successfully open the files, but that’s something we’ll look into too.

    Hi Kassi,

     

    I did some digging around in our emails and I was able to find the file you’re referring to.

     

    I’m reviewing that now to see if it opens, and will let you know if we have any questions.

     

    Thank you!

    Hi Kassi,

     

    I don’t see any file attached or additional email related to a file transfer at this time.

     

    Please let me know if there is a link I should follow, or where the file was added / sent.

     

    Thank you for your help.
    Have a great afternoon!

    I did a little more research and just sent a file via secure file transfer. Please let me know if you receive it and this works for you.

     

    Thank you

    Hi Sunshine Request,

     

    we have 3 hours of video from 3 separate cameras… so 9 hours of footage total plus accompanying files that allow you to view the footage. It’s a little under 10gb total. If you have a website, I can attempt to upload it. If you would like to come by to pick up the drive or provide one, I will be here today until noon and from 1-4 this afternoon or the same times tomorrow. Thank you

    Kassi,

     

    If possible would you mind checking with your technical team to ensure that it’s not possible to share this video electronically via Google Drive, Dropbox, etc and if not can you provide a bit more of the technical information as to why it’s too large? However, if uploading the file online somewhere is not possible then we’d be happy to pick it up sometime this week. What days and times work for you?

     

    Thank you!

    Good morning,

     

    Per your request for surveillance footage below; that footage is available now. The file formats are too large to transfer electronically. At this time, one flash drive with that footage is available for a representative of Sunshine Request to pick up from myself at Buncombe County Administration Offices, 3rd floor. Please contact me to confirm time.

     

    Per NCGS § 132-6.2(b) there is a $10.95 material charge for the drive. If you would like to provide a drive of your own, that is also acceptable, although there will be additional time needed to transfer those files.

     

    Thank you
