Hi, it looks like something is seriously screwed up when using File -> Backup Project function WITH “Keep current project active” option checked.
Here’s what I think my usual workflow was until now when creating a backup (actually an archive) of a finished project:
- i open my final version of the project, I bounce all my audio, instrument, fx or any other relevant tracks so everything is nice and clean and easily interchangeable with any other daw.
- I remove all unused or unrelevant tracks from the project
- I perform a “Backup Project” to my backup HDD checking “keep current project active”
- when Nuendo has finished the backup, I close my project without saving so Nuendo prompts me with “you have created new files…keep/delete”
- I hit delete because I have no use of these bounced files on my current audio HDD
- I think this used to work like a charm…
Now, if I actually do that in N6 latest, my original “final” .npr gets automaticaly overwritten without anykind of warning with the backup project file but without the new name I may have enterded for the intended backup version !!!
To cut it short, I loose all the work i have done between the “Final” version and the previous version saved (I always saved as new version when working with .npr)
- Open a project
- perform anykind of bouncing
- file -> backup what you just done in a new folder checkin “keep current project active”
- once finished, try opening the undo history and undoing what you have bounced
- you’re screwed
i open my “final”.npr and “save as” under a different name before doing anything.
BUT I’ll have to manually delete all my bounced files from the original projet audio folder !
Can anyone confirm this and that I’m not making up my “old” workflow ?
