Part: 3 Wrapping Up > How to Back Up or Archive iDVD Projects

Chapter 8. How to Back Up or Archive iDVD Projects

You might have noticed that the contents of even the smallest DVD project consume a massive amount of hard drive space. For example, the smallest DVD project I've done so far contained just 9 or 10 minutes of video, yet it used just over half a gigabyte of disk space. And that was only the video that ended up being used in the final DVD. If you count all the raw footage I imported, all the interim versions of movies I saved, all the versions of all the still pictures and sounds (both used and rejected), and everything else used in the production, we're talking about closer to 2 GB.

As you might imagine, a DVD with more content—say 60 or 90 minutes of video—might well use more than 4 GB of disk space. With raw footage, interim versions, graphics, audio, and any other content, a single DVD project can easily require more than 20 GB of disk space before you're through.
