About the Backup Files

Because the Final Cut Server backup files do not contain any actual media, they are relatively small files.

It is strongly recommended that you back up the Proxies and Versions devices, along with the Final Cut Server catalog backup file, shortly after you back up the Final Cut Server catalog. These devices use the Contentbase file system format and rely on Final Cut Server having an accurate catalog of their contents. Being able to restore the devices and catalog from files created at the same time results in the Final Cut Server catalog accurately matching up to these devices.

Note: It is also suggested that you back up the assets and projects on your other devices.
