After a recent hard drive failure, and subsequent lucky data recovery, I wonder how the pros SOP works. In graphics, we tend to COPY the project folder to the desktop, work on it, then copy it back, overwriting the original. With Logic, I always just worked on the original from my external drive. I have Logic prefs set to keep 3 layers of backup, so I never worried about it. But after having my external HD fail on me, and having to spend over 24 hours doing data recovery (luckily successfully), I am wondering if the same SOP for graphics would be a good idea for audio. I usually leave my trash un-emptied for several days. So any un-backed up files would have several days before a HD failure would be a major problem. PLUS, If I left the projects I was working on on the desktop, I'd be more likely to remember to back them up on a CD before trashing them. What is your work-flow?
