    Hi, i'm about to get my first DAW setup which will be protools. This questions is a little more general though so i'm putting it in this forum.

    Anyway, i'm getting two scsi drives for my setup and was wondering on how to back these up?

    like i said, i'm new to this world so hopefully you guys can walk me through the options.

    hey again. just to clarify...what i meant was:
    if i had a project i was done with but knew that someday i might need to come back to it, what are my options? Do i have to just keep it on the drive or are there other places i could tuck it away that would allow me to bring it back and use it whenever i needed.

    hope you guys can help!

    There are several ways to back things up..which is more reliable..thats a whole different story...CDR's of course are the most common and most popular..people are tending to go to DVD Ram drives now..5.6 and 9.4GB disks available..some go with Travan Tape drives..some have hard drives just to have as backups.
    It depends on your data size and flexability to use with your DAW and not take any other resources from any other important devices. If it's simple backups well, just burn it as data iso9660 format and when you want to bring it back drag it back to the hard drive and voilla it's done!
    Any other questions feel free to ask
