Audio file management ► Backing up projects with digital audio

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).
If your project references audio from multiple folders, for example you have a library of loops that you share between several projects, you can gather all the audio for your project into a single folder using the Consolidate Project Audio command. The Consolidate Project Audio command copies every audio file your project references into a backup folder beneath the projects audio data folder. Creating a copy of all your project’s audio may take a lot of disk space.
A bundle file is a single file that contains all the information—except video—used in a project. A bundle file includes everything that is stored in a normal project file, plus all the digital audio that is used in the project.

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.
