Backup option in P2 CMS.

Hey guys,
I downloaded the P2 CMS software and cannot seem to get the footage to import in the DATABASE mode so I can properly back up the files. I have no problem importing the footage in the INGEST mode but as soon as I switch over to database mode there is no option to import my footage! What step am I missing here?

Thanks

Are you trying to get footage off of the card?

No it has already been dragged and dropped off the card to a G-Raid. I am trying to transfer the MXF files to another G-Raid where I am keeping only raw P2 footage on.

Is this backup option something that has to be done directly off the P2 card?

Can I just drag and drop the P2 Raw Master folders into the other drive?

Thanks

No reason to use P2CMS for this.

You could use a (free) program called Super Duper to copy/back-up the files for you. This is the only way we back-up our P2 files now. We had a number of corruptions caused (we thing) from the drag-n-drop method.

You need ShotPut Pro!

Drag and Drop will only lead to problems.
