To give a bit of context, my company is working with an agricultural firm. The firm must submit a database showin information on temperatures etc for the month to the FDA.
My boss wants the automation side to be in it's own world of sorts as much as possible.
In theory we would like to be able to run groov in a box, node-red in groov to move information from groov data stores into an sql database with the database running on a separate external harddrive connected to the AR1.
I do understand I can do this fairly easily using Groov Server on a windows computer running SQL Server Express and Node-RED all on the same computer, however my boss would like to see if we can do something like this without having to depend on a possibly non-industrial standard machine.
Long story short, It would be cool if the groov ar1 could back-up more than just it's project to the USB ports.
If I could interact with the USB drive using Node-RED to move files around that would be cool too (I know I can do this with a regular computer and Node-RED and an USB Stick etc. But the drive has to be mapped to a letter so I can use the drives location, I dont think groov AR-1 does this.)
Phew.... sorry for the wall of text. I could think of tons of stuff I would want to beable to do with Node-RED and the USB ports, but just having them mapped to a drive letter would be amazing.
