    FactoryTalk View questions

    When creating a project in Studio 5000 there are three options: FT View, Logix Designer, or View. What is the view project and how it it different from FT View? Picture added.

    And also, we are creating datalogs on the line but the file sizes are very large (6.5GB). Meaning it takes up a lot of space on the HMI PC and takes forever to transfer files onto another PC. Is the only solution to create another datalog with less files?

    Thanks.

    Good afternoon @MattMatt9.

    I previously answered your first question here:

    As far as DataLogs, if you need a smaller log file you will need to reduce the number of tags being logged, or the frequency you are logging them. While some products support running multiple log files, most A-B HMIs do not
