Verify Your Backups

Media Composer v7’s Dynamic Media Folder workflow can help streamline many of the file-based workflows when dealing directly with the camera originals from the card or drive. What it doesn’t do, is offer any kind of copy verification or MD5 report ensuring a copy was successful before putting that card back into circulation. There are several applications that do a very nice job of this with more functionality than just MD5 checks. But if you’re looking for an easy solution to just verify the copy, there is a cool free utility created by Chris Wayg called CopyVerified. In additon to the file copy verification, it also offers up to four destinations to create a backup at the same time. I’ll do a little more research and update when I find a similar (free) product for Windows.
