until now I haven't really ever needed to back all my work up.
My computer has never crashed (touch wood) but now I am starting to save larger video files on my harddrive, and my created compositions are getting larger & more creative,
I'm starting to feel I beter start doing so.
So my question being,
What is the best way to back everything up (paticularly the AVI files)?
I cant just convert my AVI files to Mpeg burning them on to DVD as a back up,
because know matter which way i convert them back from Mpeg to AVI,
Premier Pro-After Effects won't let me import them in.
And if I try to put my AVI files onto disk and keep them in that format (if that can be done, I've really never tried) then obviously they would take up far to many DVD's in doing so.
Another thing is if you make a back up for all the AE& or PP2 using their saving formats,
if the computer does crash, isn't it correct that because i'd loose the exact locations of the AVI's that these programs will know longer be able to access them?
Another words, has anyone got some advice on what they do! etc etc!
PS Also is it true if you have a second harddrive and save everything to this, that if the computer crashes it's impossible for the second harddrive to actually wipe clean?
