Just wondering what people use as a database to store info? I still keep in touch with my broadcasting friends, and I help them out when needed, and when they need IT help...they call me. Today, I got a call from a producer, and he saves all his edited commercials on an external hard drive, and he asked me how to create something that would be easy to use for the creative staff to search which drive has which commercial. I'm thinking of creating a simple Excel spreadsheet, but was wondering if anyone already had something available that would do the trick.
I'll also recommend that they keep a duplicate Hard Drive in case of failure, but would like to hear any ideas on what else they can do....maybe Blue-Ray backup
