Loads of stuff to backup


I have currently finished my last project successfully! That feels great. But, as did the last FTP-Uploads this morning, I saw that my project older has grown to nearly 45 GB. Though I am not sure how to backup these files. I cannot delete them, because it is possible that I have to reactivate the project in one or two years for remastering and reworking for HD. For two or three DVDs the project is too big. Antoher possibility is an 60 GB external FW drive. What do you think is the best way to backup this stuff? Do you have expreience in backup loads of data?

Best Regards

I would go for redundancy, back up to a Hard Drive(s)and DVD's and if your really concerned I would have another set of backups at a different location.

I saw a 120 GB USB hard drive for around $100 the other day.

I wouldn't track to a USB drive, but it seems good for back-ups.

You could try dual layer DVDRs...they hold 8.5 gigs but you would need 6 of them to back up 45GB. Personally, I would back it up twice on DVDs and store one copy where there is no chance of fire damage.

I tracked to a USB 2.0 drive the other day, 12 tracks @ 96k/24 bit with no issues from a POS Dell Inspiron 1100 laptop using Nuendo 2.

It should have the bandwidth - and your buffers should take up the slack.

There is room for error if the settings aren't right and somebody knocks the mouse. I guess I just get nervous.......
