The original clips can be backed up in the CLIP folder and the Avid library clips and other non-XDCAM files (the op-atom files from Avid Media Files/MXF/#) can be backed up in the User Data folder. if what you need is just a matter of backing up XDCAM file with unique file names, set Free Naming on the device to ON. if you are using the U1/U2 drive this setting is in the drive utility application. On the decks and cameras it's in the operational menu.
