perhaps someone deleted the files? check who has access to other than view and restrict the access to 1 user ONLY

Do daily checks, you may want to use forensic tools to see if the files are still on the hard drive

or are you saying anything older than 1 month is deleted?


all recorded files inside NVR suddenly disappeared after 20 days  , i think the problem happened when the Hard disks reach it is full capacity so the NVR overwrite features does not work correctly at this time so the data lost  is that logic reason please advise ?

If the hard drives run out of space then it is logical that files will disappear.. if you need to keep them for posterity you need to archive them
