Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video Backing up your final project, part of Pro Tools: Audio for Film and Video.
When we work with digital media, there are few constants we must consider.…Number one, hard drives fail. Number two, a project is never finished even when…you think it's done.…In this movie, we'll work through a few simple ideas about how to back up your…Pro Tools sessions as you work as well as how to archive your project after its completion.…The best way to back up a Pro Tools session is to copy the session folder…to another hard drive.…This can be managed by software which keeps track of any changes and syncs these…changes in a future backup.…There are a number of low-cost softwares that do this such as SuperDuper…on the Mac platform or for Windows you have Backup and Restore as part of the…Windows platform or Norton 360.…
As you can see here SuperDuper is really useful for doing incremental backups.…But you can also back up manually.…The first time you back up your session, you want to copy the session folder…to another hard drive.…So here in my Exercise Files in 10_01 I've copied this whole session file over…

Q: This course was updated on 4/04/12. Can you tell me what changed?
A: This update was initiated when Avid released Pro Tools 10. It explains that this course can be taken with either Pro Tools 9 or 10 (the exercise files are compatible with both), and we also added movies that explore the enhanced clip-based gain and Audio Suite features in Pro Tools 10, both of which are useful when building a soundtrack.
