Much to my own surprise, “file management” has to be one of the most requested things readers ask for when it comes to Logic.
Isn’t that something? I would’ve thought managing files would be a snooze fest. But apparently this is a topic in high demand! That just warms my geeky heart 🙂
First – I’ve actually posted several videos related to this very topic on WLPR. But obviously I haven’t done a good enough job organizing the website and channel so you can find them!
As a result, I’ve created a new YouTube playlist and Category on the website called “File Management.” That way it’s way easier to find these important videos:
Second – in today’s video let’s discuss one really important aspect of file management:
Backing up and archiving your Logic Projects.
Backing up is soooo important. Because as they say – stuff happens. Files get deleted. Hard drives stop working. Or worse…
It’s often recommended to back up your Projects in 3 locations. Typically 2 external hard drives, and one cloud solution.
But what do you do when you’re sitting on a lot of Projects and content? Juggling 3 separate backups can turn into a real pain in a hurry.
In fact, I’ve found myself in this very boat. After years of juggling hard drive after hard drive, I’m just sick of the struggle. So I decided to change my approach.
While I can’t claim to have the “perfect” backup solution in place, I think it’s the easiest way to manage Projects. But it does require a 3rd party service. And that’s Dropbox.
Check out today’s video. Maybe this archiving strategy might just make your life a lot easier. Have a better solution in place for backing up and archiving? Please, let us know in the comments below!
