All the usual suspects, good summary Oliver and good find Garry :-)

One software which I just discovered yesterday should be added: Backups

I'm not affiliated at all with this company but I highly recommend this back up solution for Events and Projects.

I used Pro-versioner and unfortunately it doesn't really work. Specially when using Event Manager which I think is a must to keep things tidy and economical. Also Pro-versioner is very unstable and temperamental at times.

Backups is very elegant and really backs up what you need if you are concerned about having no copy of the current projects or event database files on a second hard drive in case the media drive dies. And they fully support 'hidden' folders created by Event Manager. On their website they also have a white paper about back up strategies with FCPx which can be a good read if you're new to the problem.

my 2 cents :-)

Happy Editing
