The following tech note describes how to copy individual files from one storage media to another from within the 7-Series Recorders. There are two slightly different methods, one for the 788T/788T-SSD models, and one for 702, 702T, 722, 744T  recorders.

Files recorded by the 7-Series have a Copy Flag associated with them. This flag is used to identify files for copying. Upon recording files have their Copy Flags set to on. To copy files from one media to another—for instance, the internal hard drive to CompactFlash—enter the File: Copy Files menu item to select files and volumes. To select individual files, it is a bit more complicated than copying all files or files recorded the last 24 or 48 hours.
