Join Robbie Carman for an in-depth discussion in this video Backing up the Final Cut Server catalog, part of Final Cut Server 1.5 Getting Started.
So last week, before I came to record this title, I got a call from a friend…who owns a small post-production company, and has recently implemented Final Cut Server.…As I picked up the phone, I immediately heard the angst in his voice.…In between curse words, I heard, "machine crashed," "drive dead," "catalog gone."…After I got him calmed down a bit, he informed me that the machine he uses as Final Cut…Server had its system drive all of a sudden die.…He tried data recovery, but that didn't work.…Luckily, he had copies of all the media he used in his Final Cut Server catalog.…
So I asked, "You backed up your Final Cut Server catalog, right?"…There was a super-long pause on the other end of the phone, and then, "No, I…didn't know you could do that."…Well, I just let out a big sigh,…as I know my friend had spent weeks customizing metadata, building automations,…and countless hours adding assets to the catalog.…Guess what? All that hard work was now gone.…In this movie, I want to show you how to backup the Final Cut Server catalog, so…
