As you work on your storyboard project, it is always a good idea to save continuously. At the end of each workday, it is even better to backup your work. The difference between backing-up and saving is that a backup is a compressed version of your project. Backing-up your work provides a safety net against corrupted files and allows you to have several versions of your project at different stages, in case you ever want to go back and work from an earlier point in the production.
This section includes the following topics:
|•||Backing Up Storyboard|
