Backing Up To The Future

Here’s a common plea for assistance you’ve seen on Resolve forums every couple of months: “I’ve lost my database and all its project files. PLEASE HELP! My deadline is in 5 hours!”.

If you’re that person desperately searching for a lost database or project, what you really need is a trip back in time with Doc Brown and his Delorean -giving you time to back up your projects and data.

Understand that finding yourself in this situation isn’t a matter bad luck – just a matter of bad timing. The fact is: This WILL happen to each of us. Period. Drives fail. Databases get corrupted. The only time this becomes a problem is if you don’t properly plan for it.

What many DaVinci Resolve colorists and admins don’t realize is that it has a few different options to aid you in backing up your project. Spend one hour today – and a few minutes weekly – and you can save your future self / reputation / career / business a whole lot of pain!

In this article, I’m going to show you 3 useful and easy methods to protect your work from hard drive catastrophe.
