Help With Criminal Case Needed - DVR Sporadically Losing Footage?

Has anyone dealt with sporadic losses of video at various times on multiple cameras? I am working a Murder case and the homeowner’s Swann 1450 system caught the alleged suspect entering and leaving the home. All 8 cameras lost various lengths of video at different times. Some loss occurred while in infrared mode and some during full daylight. The system was set for continuous recording as far as I can tell. (A capacitor degraded on the original recorder and I had to buy a new one to view the video, but everything leads me to believe it was not set for motion). The hard drive failed, but was successfully cloned by a reputable company. Any ideas or experiences are greatly appreciated.
