Sometimes it becomes necessary to transfer recorded sessions from the emWave2 device and clear the device. It’s important to note here that the emWave2 will record 18 hrs. of sessions before it stops recording. You may continue to use the device but the sessions will not be recorded until you transfer the out of the unit.
If you just want to delete sessions on the emWave2 device, you must first open the emWave software program and connect your emWave2 to your computer via the USB interface cable.
In the emWave program, go to File and Sync emWave2.
Ensure that Sync Session Data with Device is checked if you want to transfer your recorded sessions.
Also ensure that Delete Hand Held Session Data after import is checked; it will remove the sessions after transferring them to the emWave software.
WARNING: Only use the “Delete handheld session data after import” function to clear Session data from the emWave2. Wiping the emWave2 device will completely clear all session data (without saving) and disassociate the emWave2 from the current computer, by assigning a new digital ID number, making it available for use with a different computer and user.
How to Wipe the emWave2 device:
Open the emWave program
Click > File and Sync emWave2
Click the Options button on the left.
On the next screen, put a check mark in the box next to Wipe Device
Follow the prompts to complete the procedure. Your emWave2 is now released from that computer and can now be associated with a different user on a different computer.
VERY IMPORTANT NOTE:
After you do a wipe of the device, do another sync to the computer (before you run any sessions on the unit) to set the internal clock on the handheld unit. That will apply the correct dates to the sessions you will be recording and syncing. This will protect the integrity of your session database and keep it from getting corrupted causing a catastrophic database failure.
