Default Re: Safest way to Backup sessions?


I found that the best way for me to backup my Pro Tools 11 session is to go the the session folder and copy the entire folder for that song to any drive I want to back it up on. This has all the necessary files you need to bring it back to your session directory and reopen it.

A note of CAUTION!!!!!

I use Battery 4: It's best to have all the samples you use for your drum set on a particular song, located inside the specific session folder for that song so that if you back up (by copying) your session to another drive and then bring it back, Battery 4 can find the exact wav files for the drum set. Trust me.... it will prevent you from losing a perfect kit. These are lessons you sometimes learn the hard way.
