Archiving your work

Here, you’ll discover a workflow for making sure your work is accessible months or years after a job is completed, with no media or effects missing. The archiving process might not be exciting, but it’s definitely important. If a client comes back to you in six months wanting an urgent re-edit on a past Project, you’ll win kudos if you can get the job done quickly and easily. While it would be nice if storage was unlimited, you can’t keep every past job on your active storage forever; video is big, and expands to fill hard drives of any size.

Specifically, you’ll find out how to make sure everything’s in one place by consolidating the media and everything else you need. Then, you’ll figure out how to throw things away, first a little, and then a lot. Finally, you’ll establish how to manage your archives and recover from a backup.

In a few words? Consolidate your old jobs, and then move them somewhere...
