How to Backup Finished Video Projects and Archive Completed Videos

Video editing projects can take up a ton of space on your drive, and if you’re producing regular video content you can run out of space very quickly!

But instead of just deleting your completed projects, it’s important to backup finished video projects correctly to prevent any headaches later on down the track…

There are a few options to do it, depending on the type of project and the likelihood you’ll need to modify the project again in future.

In this video we run through the 3 options I recommend to archive completed videos for different types of projects, ranging from regular YouTube videos all the way to professional documentaries.
