Backup strategy: updated

As some of you may remember, a few weeks ago I discussed the backup strategy/workflow outlined by Chase Jarvis and promised a tutorial on how to use GIT to add versioning & multi computer sync to your workflow.

While I havent completed the GIT tutorial yet, I decided to git a shot to Dropbox to take care of the multi-syncing across computers and off site backup.  So far, it is working very well.

As noted in the initial post, I am not using these versioning/backup solutions to store the RAW stills/original H.264 files but only to store the XML and project files which are much smaller.

While I find the GIT workflow more flexible and faster, Dropbox is a nice alternative to anyone who does not want to learn a new command line tool.
