    The project and Attic are the only copies MC generates.

    Re: are bins stored anywhere other than the Attic to recover

    I finally got an answer, several days after i had sent an email to avid. I'm not sure why the holiday season has anything to do with technical support. I also never recieved a call. I was told that the contract gives you a call in 24hrs. I had sent an email about Can the unmarked files in the Uknown Bin be recovered from the attic. If there was a simple answer why couldn't i get a simple response in less than 3 or 4 days? This was what was sent back

    Hi Moshe, 
    
    Yes, you can open those files in the avid attic. what you need to do is to copy one of them and put it in a folder where you want to save your project. Then you must rename the file by removing the last number of the to .avb. 
    
    For example, Rozanskky.45.8 should be renamed as Rozanskky.45.avb. You can open the .avb file 
    in the Project window by looking for the file path. also, the number indicates the version of the
     project file. so you must copy the latest number that's indicated in the project since it's the
     latest project file that you have.

    Re: are bins stored anywhere other than the Attic to recover

    The answer from support is the standard procedure for recovering an Attic copy of a bin.

    But in this topic you've not given enough information for me (or anyone) to offer any additional help.

    Everytime you save the previously saved version is copied to the attic. Into a folder named the same as your Project into a folder names the same as that bin. Each saved version gets an incrementally increasing number.

    So your projects attic should have a folder per bin with multiple copies of older versions of that bin.

     

    However I don't reccomend people use the Attic as a backup. Its disaster recovery really.

    It makes sense to have 2 sequence bins and duplicate copies of the current sequence between them as well as at least daily complete project backups to an external location or USB stick.
