备份你的逻辑系统 -

I know, you do not need to make backups. Your Mac works perfectly, it's in pristine condition and you love and hug it every day. So you do not need any backups. Right? You will... right on that day wh

我知道,你不需要进行备份。你的Mac的作品完美,它的原始状态和你爱拥抱每一天。所以,你不需要任何备份。对不对?你会... ...那一天,当您的硬盘死亡。相信我,它可以发生。它发生在我身上。但我有备份。所以这是一个好主意,为您进行备份。

现在,我们已经建立,你确实需要备份,问题出现了:

在这篇文章中,我们将重点放在备份你的逻辑为基础的Mac。

时间机器

第一,最明显的,方法是时间机器,我强烈建议您使用。尽管经常有人说,使用Time Machine减慢,特别是在你的系统,结合像逻辑应用,我从来没有遇到过这种。 Time Machine备份的准备是一个天赐良机,因为它可以让你在硬盘驱动器故障的情况下继续工作在几分钟内。只要保持这种情况下准备一个备用驱动器。 Time Machine将执行增量备份,每隔一小时,在我看来这使得完美的系统驱动器。如果驱动器出现故障时,可以使用时间机器在几分钟之内恢复最新的备份。

时间机器的所有驱动器的完整备份,尤其是您的系统驱动器(不排除任何驱动器/文件夹)。这是伟大的,但绝对肯定,这是一个好主意,有您的所有工作相关的不同的驱动器,从独立的Time Machine数据备份。这将包括音序器项目,喜好,可能是采样复合音色和你花大量的时间创建的所有其他事情。这可以让你有你的工作方便和便于查找某些文件。有很多的应用可以做到这一点,例如iBackup(免费)或SmartBackup(商业)。我之所以选择从Time Machine备份中排除我的逻辑和西贝柳斯的文件,我宁愿要备份这些关键任务的文件,自己手动。

在我的Mac上,时间机器,只备份系统驱动器;上一切离开,这是我在这一天结束与SmartBackup执行手动备份。日新月异的巨大文件,如逻辑项目,每一个小时与Time Machine备份是漂亮的资源密集型的,通常甚至没有必要的。精确定时的备份后,对项目的重要一步是要好得多 - 这就是为什么你应该做它的手!

与备份,有一个小问题:

在本教程中,我想给你一个想法,包括这样一个“备份工作”,并告诉你一些更隐蔽位置在OSX的文件系统中的文件。我认为你的“工作陆委会”没有任何“个人”的东西就可以了,所以我们将忽略电子邮件帐户时,iPhoto图书馆,iTunes和的喜欢。如果你想轻松备份所有这些,我可以推荐上述SmartBackup申请,“知道”这些应用程序保存其档案,并允许你收集一切与一按。相信我,这是值得的钱!

你应包括在“备份工作”?

工作备份的目标是双重的:

  • Here are some things you should include in the backup:
  • All the project files of your sequencer(s)
  • Template files of your sequencers
  • Preference files of your sequencers and most-used applications
  • Multi files from your samplers
  • User-edited patches (these can be huge!)
  • User presets of instruments
  • Possibly office documents, FTP accounts, and all the little things

Some of these things are located in slightly hard-to-find folders. When searching for the preferences of an application, always look in
(User) / Library / Preferences
Most of the preferences are located here.

如果您无法找到您正在寻找的文件,尝试在您的系统驱动器的根文件夹/资料库 / Preferences。大多数应用程序中存储每个用户自己的喜好,虽然,这样的用户库,将是您更好的地方去寻找。

Logic Pro has some special folders where it saves your information. There is a folder for Logic in the Application Support directory, located at
(User) / Library / Application Support / Logic
In it you will find all your user account's custom settings like Channel Strips, Instrument Setting or Key Commands. Include this whole directory in your backup to be on the safe side.

If you have some 3rd party AudioUnit plug-ins on your system, chances are high that some of those are freeware plugins that you may not have the installers for anymore. Chances are high, too, that those plugin just contain the actual AU file, but do not have any files outside their "binary". To make sure that you always have all plugins ready, you can include the plugin directory in your backup, too. They are located at
/ Library / Audio / Plug-Ins

or
(User) / Library / Audio / Plug-Ins /

大多数插件是为所有用户安装,这是为什么你会发现在根库文件夹。如果你不使用任何的RTAS主机(即Pro Tools的),或需要VST插件,你也可以考虑删除的插件,这些副本,一些安装不问,即使你只需要安装所有三个(AU,VST和RTAS)非盟版本。所有非盟插件驻留在“/ 组件 /”文件夹。但如果有疑问,不删除任何东西!

对于用户的修补程序和复合,确保它们保存在一个目录,在那里你可以很容易地找到他们。有时候插件创建自己的文件夹,应用程序支持。如果您正在寻找这些文件,首先看有。这同样适用于其他所有的应用程序。 FTP客户端可能在应用程序支持使用一个目录来保存其偏好和帐目,太。

为什么要使用专用的外部驱动器

You can do the actual backup on an internal drive if you have a Mac that supports having multiple internal drives (that would be a MacPro or PowerMac). Never use use just a partition on your internal drive, i.e. partitioning the system drive! If your drive fails, all partitions on it will be lost, so you need to use a different physical drive for backup.
Even if you still have room for a drive in your machine, nevertheless it is good to use an external hard disk connected to your computer via firewire or USB. Only plug this drive in when performing a backup. This makes things pretty secure, as you cannot by accident delete anything. Furthermore, the drive is protected from getting damaged when something happens to your machine (or if someone steals it!).
I have found those small 2.5' drives from local supermarkets (yeah, they really sell those right next to tomatoes and cucumbers!!) perfectly suitable for this task. Buy a number of them and use them alternating for your daily backups. This gives you good protection from hardware failure. These are also small enough to take them with you on the road for quick access to the latest projects.

在云

If you happen to have a Dropbox or MobileMe subscription or use a similar service, there is also the possibility of backing up some important folders to the "cloud". With MobileMe, Logic Pro can backup some things automatically. Go to Logic's Preferences and choose the "Sharing" tab. There you need to enter your MobileMe credentials and tell Logic what to backup. At a later date you can then get the information back from MobileMe by clicking "Restore Backup".

对于你们当中的技术... ...

结论

我希望这有助于您在建立备份计划。最好是防患于未然!如果您有意见或问题,写在评论中,我会尽我所能来帮助你。

  • I wanted to throw in another backup solution that works very well in the scenario you describe. It's been around for quite some time and is still in active development: Carbon Copy Cloner (CCC). You can configure this robust donation-ware program to back up specific files (in this case, the ones you mention in your post) and even instruct CCC to launch when your backup drive is connected to your Mac. This makes it a breeze to perform regular backups, manually. Another classic use for CCC is to create a bootable backup of your system so you're ready when you system drive reaches the end of its life (or decides to end it prematurely...). If you happen to be in the middle of an important project, you can reboot from your CCC backup and carry on working. Thanks for the post!

    Thanks, that's indeed a very good backup solution. I have used CCC yesterday for the first time when setting up the new system of a studio and found it absolutely great. Could be a great replacement for SmartBackup.

    Hey JF and Toby, Great article! I'm another seasoned Carbon Copy Cloner user. Swear by it and love it dearly for it's ease of use and flexibility. Another popular one amongst Mac users is SuperDuper: It's not free though... Have a great Christmas and New Year!

  • You're welcome, Toby. Glad you're enjoying your test drive with CCC. As Rounik mentions, SuperDuper is great, too, and well worth the license fee if you're making it part of your arsenal--which I have for a few years, although CCC has been my tool of choice recently. CCC is donation ware, as you may have noticed. Clicking that Donate button and chipping in a few bucks really goes a long way and helps finance future upgrades/development. I love this honor system myself. Enjoy the last few days of 2010, everyone!
