Hello, John!

Could you share with us some info about the computer(s) you use (hardware, OS)?
How do you do the backups?
Do you keep all the projects or you delete them after a certain time?
Do you keep all the projects on a local disk or you use a NAS server?
How are the projects delivered to you (FTP, WeTransfer ...)?
Is your main DAW connected to internet?
Do you have any problems with keeping everything up to date and compatible/stable at the same time?

Thanks in advance!

Currently using;

2013 Trashcan Mac, High Sierra
I backup everything to a hard drive, and then the harddrive to an LTO tape.
When hard drive backups are full, the hard drive is retired and stored. Nothing is every deleted.
Current projects are on local disks and a secure cloud account.
Projects are delivered via many types of FTP and Transfer services (i.e. WeTransfer, Dropbox)
When we have a stable OS and ProTools version; we'll not upgrade it for a year or more.
