This solution provides instructions on recovering libraries that become corrupted. For an overview of clip libraries and of the way the applications create automatic backups, see this article: About clip library backups.
Restoring Backup Files
Perform the following tasks to restore a corrputed library from a backup.Note: Before copying/retrieving the backups of the corrupted library, create a directory that will host a copy of the library files. You can use these copies in case you need to roll back.
Warning: Make sure there is no local or remote connection to the framestore while performing these operations.
Create a backup of the current directory structure so full recovery to the current state is possible. Note: Make sure that no one is accessing the framestore over wire or remote framestore. cp -rp /usr/discreet/clip/<framestore volume>/<project>* /usr/tmp/backup
Start troubleshooting the library, by navigating to the appropriate directory hosting the library files: cd /usr/discreet/clip/<framestore volume>/<project>/workspace*
The backup files have the same name and extension as the original file, but with a different numeric suffix indicating the age of the back-up.
For example, a library called "MyFolder" will have four files in the workspace folder:
