Backing Up Project databases with Dropbox / Symlinks
Backing Up Project databases with Dropbox / Symlinks

What systems do people use to backup the project database?

I try and semi frequently copy the entire projects folder to another drive, but its hard to do this as frequently as I would like. I also regularly export .DRP projects to the cloud at crucial points in the project as a if all else fails measure, but this all requires too much effort and thought… the old adage of if you have to do it manually its a bad backup strategy applies here.

What I would like to do is make a symlink of the projects folder in my dropbox so that it is always backed up to the cloud in realtime.

Anyone see any problems with this?

Anyone using other strategies to backup the database, or make backups in general?

The other issue is… Assuming the internal drive DID die, is restoring as simple as installing a fresh version of resolve and replacing the projects folder?
