Default Basic assets organization: survive to storage shortage

As always, I state that I'm a Edius home user and still today I don't master it entirely.
I was looking for suggestions on how to streamline my Edius workflow so i came across this thread which covers partially my questions:

https://forum.grassvalley.com/forum/....php?t=41403**

Despite of being a home user my clips archive has grown during the years. Months ago i upgraded to a new workstation and I would like a better (future proof) way of organize my assets.

In my old desktop I had everything on the same drive with two main folders:
  • Edius projects, which contains a sub-folder for each Edius project
  • "video archive" which contains a sub-folder for each shooting session.

Having everything on the same HD I simply grabbed everything form the clip folder into Edius bin.

Now, on my new workstation I have a fast 1TB ssd that I use for editing the current project. Basically I have there the "Edius Project" folder. Moreover I have a 10TB fast sata hd with all the clips, basically the*"video archive" folder.

I naively thought to copy the clip folders on my ssd, working on the project and once completed just deleting all the clips.
Actually when I reopen the projects i need to relink all the clips which means (with this conf) I have to copy again every clip is missing.
Last but not the least I saw some tutorial on Mync and i would like to start tagging all my clips.

When I import clips into my bin I could use the option to transfer a copy to the project folder. In this way, I would have a self contained project. But when I will archive it on my 10tb drive I would have tons of duplicate clips, especially when I have a project with clips from different shootings.

In the end what's the best solution? What is the best solution for my needs?Storage is not cheap and with 4K files, even a home user like me ends up having TB of files in a shot period of time.

Please help

Thanks Geoff,

I understand that is quicker to do than explaining it but it answer partially to my question.
But really this is the only method to manage assets?

I will try again searching "archive"

Thanks

In the end I need two big archives:

- Clips archives
- consolidated projects (created via https://forum.grassvalley.com/forum/...69&postcount=5)

Thanks

I work different

Every project folder contains all assets belonging to that project. So it is easy to copy the folder to another drive for backup

Hi Anton, do you copy or move all assets?

Most of the time I end up using just a part of the available clips so if I move all I could need into the folder project I will waste a lot of space.

Moreover, I could use the same assets for several different projects, so I guess that all of you have a separate clips archive organized in a folder structure (for this Mync and its tagging feature is a huge help).
