I got put in charge of archiving our projects and was wondering how others have their system set up. We currently keep all our archived projects on CD's but the bosses are questioning if this is a good idea. Any info would be appreciated.

never use cd's get your self some tape drives to back up your server, and save and archive them on your server. also remember to save all linked files when archiving and also all materials. as i find most people don't do this and this means that there projects aren't complete. hope this helps

Finally getting ready to archive our first Revit project and was wondering if people had any tips before I start.  Was wondering along the lines like AutoCAD where you have to bind external references and stuff like that.  Thanks.

Ok tried to archive our first big Revit project on to a cd but it wouldn't fit so I put it on a dvd.  However when I go to try to open it up off the dvd it says "Failed to open".  Anybody have any solutions?  Does noboby else archive projects?

I doubt you can ever open from a DVD - you would have to copy to a directory where you can write.

Does no one archive projects?  What do you all do when a project is finished?  Do you just leave it on the server forever?  Would appreciate any input.

You archive it to a DVD or whatever but you would have to "restore" it (copy) it to a working drive I would think before you could open it.

When a job is finished and ready to be archived, we move it off of the server and on to an NAS (network attached storage) device as well as copying it to two CDs.  The NAS is available for browsing and files can be opened (albeit slowly).  The CDs protect the data from fire/flood and theft (were the NAS to be stolen).  The NAS also performs routine backups opf the entire server.  That is how we do it, anyway.  HTH

We have an external hard drive that we keep in a fire safe. We backup jobs as needed, then store the drive in the fire safe. Easy to access the files also. We use Retrospect (the backup software that came with the drive) and it allows for a duplicate mode where only new or updated files are backed up. It also preserves the directory structure instead of making a 'backup file'. Just brows the drive like it is installed on your system.
