Backup Strategies

Post by mazz » Sun Dec 10, 2006 1:17 pm

Hello,I'm sure this has been covered before but here goes:As a computer based composer, I find I am generating lots and lots of audio files. I've moved to 24bit (44.1) so the files are getting bigger and bigger.As I've just embarked on a new composing adventure, it's obvious that the data is going to grow faster and faster.How do folks manage all the data and particularly backing up?Some ideas I've been thinking about:1. Removable hard drives2. DVD backup (would mean tons of DVDs)How do you catalog the drives/disks so you can find sessions for re-mixing, etc?I've been using iTunes for keeping track of mixes/versions. What do others use?Thanks,John Mazzei
