I have a question about backing up with media manager:
Below is what I selected...
Include render files
Duplicate selected items and place into a new project
Include nonactive multiclip angles
I selected the back up drive as the media destination. The total file is 765 GB.
It created two folders Media and Render on the back up drive. But, where is the project file saved?
After copying the project FCP automatically opens that project, so it should be listed in recent the "Recent Projects" menu. Open it, then hit Save As, but don't save, just see where that points you, that will be where the file resides.
The other solution is to search for all .fcp files using the spotlight function in the Finder. That will point out every project file on your computer, then highlighting the correct file will give you it's location on disk at the bottom of the Finder window.
