DaVinci Resolve #3 - How to backup and restore database?

Whenever you update the software or install a new version, you’ll want to backup all your projects in case there are any problems with the new version. Like I explain in my article Understanding Database you can only update your projects to a newer version, never to an old version. You might also want to regularly create a backup for safety, to avoid losing your work due to any mishap. You can do that directly in the database sidebar.


Step 1:

Select the database you want to backup.


Step 2:

Click the backup button.

Step 3:

Choose the location you want your backup to be saved, click save, and confirm backup.


When you are done, you’ll find a .diskdb file at the folder of your choice. The backup contains your entire database.


Step 4:

To restore it, you can just click the Restore button to open and use the database.



That's it!

I just wanted to thank you for helping back up my local database the free version of DR. I just purchased DR Studio and information regarding installing Studio when you have the free version on a Mac. I have I think the Apple App Store version so Studio will not overwrite it when downloaded. Your post helped clear up some things for me. Thanks for doing that!
