I am very new to the forums and I am hoping to get some help regarding a question I have.
I have recently started a new job and I have been given numerous CF cards to back up.
I have been backing them up to two drives, first, going into the card from My computer and copying the whole contents folder (Contents, Clips001, + index file and everything in the clip folders).
I have backed everything from the cards, not changing anything to various folders on the drive, not changing any folder names in the contents folder as I know this can cause issues.
I am just hoping for piece of mind as I have been panicking a lot seeing as this is a massive job.
My question is: given that I have backed up every card from the contents level and there are various clip folders that have clips spanning over 5 .mxf clips, will I have any issues when this comes to the edit (think it's being edited in Avid on PC)?
I have not deleted any .cif, .sif, .thm, .sic? files or anything, just simply copied each card as soon as I click on in in my computer and copy the contents folder.
I would appreciate any help as I am pulling my hair out and have heard fantastic things about this forum.
