Default partition help. PT 6.9.2 on one, PT 7 on the other

hey guys

so since i've been having a lot of trouble with pro tools 7 i was thinking of creating a partition on my hard drive or having 2 users.

i'm looking for the best way to have 2 versions of pro tools on my system. i want to be able to continue testing pro tools 7 and any further updates until its running to my liking with little problems (as of now that is not the case) and i also want to have a more stable version to work with (PT 6.9.2).

can anyone recommend a method for doing this? or even if its a good idea? tips, advice?

and is it possible to save a pro tools 7 session in PT LE 7 and open it in PT LE 6.9.2?

any help on this would be much appreciated.

thanks

Default Re: partition help. PT 6.9.2 on one, PT 7 on the other

it's a very reasonable idea. i am currently running PTLE 6.4 on one partition, and 7.0 on another. This DOES mean reformatting your internal drive if it is not already partitioned--so back up everything you want to keep! you'll then need to install OSX on each partition (the flavors required by each version of PT you'll be running). so this is not a quick procedure. good luck!
