There are several ways to back up your projects in SONAR. You can use per-project audio folders to keep all a project’s audio in its own folder, use the Consolidate Project Audio command to create a backup copy of all your project’s audio, or you can save a project as a bundle file (.cwb).
2. Select Project > Audio Files.The Project Files dialog box appears.
3. In the Project Files dialog box, check the Path column to make sure that every audio file is stored in the project’s audio folder. If any files are stored in folders other than the project’s audio folder, you should use the Consolidate Project Audio command to move all audio to the project’s audio folder.
4. Close the Project Files dialog box once you have confirmed that all audio files are in the project’s audio folder.
6. Using Windows Explorer, copy the project folder and its contents, including the project’s audio folder, to its backup location (CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R, DVD-RW, Zip or Jaz drive, another hard drive, network drive, etc.).You have now created a copy of your project. It is a good idea to open the project once you have backed it up to confirm that all audio loads properly.
2. Select Utilities > Consolidate Project Audio.
4. Click OK to confirm.
5. Using Windows Explorer, copy the project, the backup folder and all its contents, including the project’s audio folder, to its backup location (CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R, DVD-RW, Zip or Jaz drive, another hard drive, network drive, etc.).
Note: The Consolidate Project Audio command only copies the audio in your project, so make sure you copy the project (.cwp) along with the backup folder.
