back-up folder
on Feb 21, 2014 at 7:37:57 pm

Need to move external raid with FCP X libraries and original media to another computer. Simple as unplugging the thunderbolt raid. But FC does leave behind a back-up folder with some files in it. Can I just copy this to the raid or leave behind and they will be recreated? I really don't want them on the system drive at all. This is a lab with many users and I want each end user's work self-contained in their private folder. I know where they are saved can be changed in FC preferences. But how can I have each of these back-ups saved where each of the end users folders are kept not at a fixed central location.

Each end user's files will be kept in a sparse image with all their work. Thus their work will be unmounted when others are logged in. Can a particular library's back-up be assigned a specific location?

As a test, I moved the external raid to another computer. I trashed that computer's FC back-up folder and in FC preferences, with a library open, created a folder called FCP X library back ups on the raid. So far nothing has been backed up there.

Solved. FCP preferences> choose different drive> Open a library> 15 minutes later, a back up appears as a folder named the same as the open event. Each event gets its own folder. The 15 min delay had me thinking it wasn't working.
