Backing Up and Restoring Projects

Regularly backing up your project file is an important part of the editing process. If
your media files are lost, they can easily be recaptured, but losing a project file could
mean re-creating hundreds of edit decisions made over weeks or months.

You should back up your projects on a regular schedule, regardless of what phase of
the project you are in. You can back up hourly, daily, or even weekly, depending on the
scope and pace of your project. It’s also a good idea to back up at important project
milestones, such as a completed rough edit or just before sending your project out for
the final sound mix.
