Just saw another feller has a shell script in here too.
Great minds think alike, I guess, here's mine:
I often help out friends shooting RED by doing their on set data management, and being student/low budget shoots, they can't always spring for a proprietary piece of software like R3D Data Manager or ShotputPro, so I wrote this script to do my copying and MD5 verification semi-automatically.
It's a shell script that: detects a connected R3D drive, creates MD5 hashes to the desktop for all R3D media, copies the magazine to all your backup drives, and then creates MD5 hashes for each copy. An included spreadsheet allows you to log this data (and uses an =exact function to ensure your MD5s match.
Unlike the other guy's script, mine does not require any drag/dropping, nor does it automatically verify the MD5 checksums, which forces manual intervention (via the DMT log) for data verification. This makes it easier to use, but also more prone to be buggy in any given situation since the script is more complicated. 'Twould be wise to grab both, I guess, and use the one that better suits your workflow.
I am sharing it out in the hope that in case one of you folks ever needs it, it's there for you, and that if you want to, you can modify as needed.
