Hi there. I see lots of people asking the question but no answers.

 

I just started today so I am not affected by the end of cloud syncing.

 

I would like to know where on my mac the project files are stored so that I may back them up.

 

Thanks!

Anne.

Rush doesn't create project files like Premiere Pro or After Effects. Sorry for the confusion. Rush projects are created in an internal database on your Mac or PC, but they aren't user accessible, so you cannot expressly back them up. Backing up your system to Time Machine or similar should be sufficient.

The product team is aware of this issue, so I hope they can come up with a better solution for editors like yourself soon. I apologize for the frustration.

Hi Kevin,

 

thank you for the reply. It is good to know that at least time machine will be picking up the files and backing them up. But I still need to know where they are so I could restore them if necessary. Unless I am restoring my entire computer, which I would only do if there was some catastrophic failure. When I buy a new computer, I don't restore from Time Machine. 

 

Even though the files are not user accessible, may I know where they are in case I ever need to restore them from Time Machine?

 

Thank you.

 

Anne.
