Auto Save Killing Me
on Aug 29, 2014 at 6:01:14 pm

Hi all,

About every 10 minutes or so my Final Curt X program begins "backing up" (according to the Background Tasks wind). I have a fairly large project, it usually takes about 30 seconds for it to complete this automatic function. During this time, system responsiveness slows to a crawl - basically no editing for the duration. Since this happens every ten minutes or so, it is a real buzz-kill to productivity.

Is this normal? Is there any way to turn off this auto-save function or at leaf set it to occur less often?

Thanks!

Is your system drive designated as the backups drive- is it close to full?

You can turn it off. Select the Library, open the inspector, click the "modify settings" button next to Storage Locations, click the Backups drop down and choose "Do Not Save'. If you do this, I'd strongly recommend using Backups for Final Cut Pro (app store) or something. Having no backups is a very bad idea. I use Backups, as well as Digital Rebellion Pro Versioner. More is better. :-)

Careful now, Bill might accuse you of slandering the good name of Final Cut Pro by accusing it of murder! :)

Not might, Bret, would.

Remember, I came our of advertising. There's nothing more powerful than unaddressed slander when it comes to moulding public opinion.

Just remember how John Kerry, the one who served honorably in combat in Vietnam - got "swift boated" into being "the coward." And how Bush 43 (who had kinda sorta draft-dodged via a preferential Nat Guard slot) got painted as the brave patriot in the 2004 election cycle?

Regardless of the esteem or contempt which which you hold either participant, there's never been a clearer example of how allowing inaccurate messaging to go unaddressed can mould public opinion away from truth and elevate the stature of lies via message manipulation.

So yep, I push back. And am delighted when others counter-push and that leads to the clarity of robust discussion.

That's just how I'm wired. ; )

Odd. I even have mine set to backup to the cloud and a lot of large projects open (though the amount of data per backup cycle is in fact *very* small) and I never notice it. I would assume there may be an issue with the disk you are saving to.

I assume you don't have Tima Machine on. That gave me trouble, long ago.

are you backing up the ptroject and the media, or just the project? If you are backing up project and media, I can see why things would grind to a halt on back up.

FCP X's backup feature does not backup media.

Why did I think that backing up media was an option? Has it been an option in the past?

Backing up at all is a new feature. So no it wasn't an option in the past. A decent idea, but a good Raid 5 probably addresses large amounts if data better than a background backup.

I've got the backups bug. It's backing up in Background tasks avery second. Weird.

I should mention that we see this too on a few stations, but not on all. It seems like it effects only certain projects. Look at the folder where your backups are supposed to be saved and see if they are there.

Yup it's empty. It's like it's trying but cannot do it for some reason.
