MHancock;
Thanks for the in-depth reply. So we need the original media files (mov, wav, tga, jpg etc) and the corresponding omf media files in order to resurrect an archived project? am I understanding this correctly?

I know in Premiere all I have to save is the original media files (avi, wav, tga etc) and the project file (ppj) to a DVD and then copy/paste them back to hard drive and open the project file (ppj) and Premiere will pop open a window asking where file shot#01.avi is located. After directing it to the new location, premiere usually finds the rest of the files and loads up the orginal project timelime flawlessly (unless I am missing/forgot to save media elements).
I am going to install the software you suggested and see if we can make it easier for my co-worker to archive and resurrect past projects.

One other question, you said
"After you've copied the media delete the database files of your OMFI MediaFiles folder....etc"
I am assuming you mean to delete the orginal media files (mov, wav, tga jpg, etc) and leave the omf files in the OMFI MediaFiles folder and then copy/paste the orginal media files to the earmarked folder in the Avid Projects folder. Open Avid Newscutter XP program and then open the bin in the earmarked folder that you just pasted everything into.

Again thanks for the input. It is all very much appreciated and very helpful. Now I just got to wrap my head around how the avid works and saves things.

Thanks
