Audacity Tutorial: How to Backup Your Audacity Project While Working On It

In this short tutorial I show you how to make a backup copy of your working Audacity project file. Project backups were introduced in Audacity version 3.0.0 and are a convenient way to backup your work, keeping the backup copy separate from your working copy. Project backups are identical to your working project but are essentially a snapshot of your working project at the moment in time that you create it. You can give your backup copy it’s own name and save it in any folder. This is a great way to make backups of your project at critical points in your editing because it give you a convenient way to go back to a version of the project before changes were made, if needed.
