Hello, I'm new to Final Cut Pro X. I have several completed projects that I've been backing up to an external hard drive. However, at first I thought it would be best to create one library on the backup drive and back up my events to this one library. But I've second guessed myself and have been instead creating a new library for each event and then backing up the event to it's own library. This seems less prone to loading issues on large projects and less likely for multiple events to become corrupted if the library gets hosed.
How do you guys manage backups and what do you guys think are the best practices, one backup library or a separate library for each event.

There has been a lot said about the"best practice" for backups.
In reality there is no right or wrong, but having all your backup eggs/Libraries in one basket can be risky.
I use your later suggested method as it suits my style of work.
I prefer to have each Project, Event/s in there own Library. Self contained unit.
When the Project is done the complete Library is copied to another drive, plus if it's important another drive is used for a second backup.
What you have to work through is what gear you have or need to aquire to make your backup method secure and easy to do.
Nowadays you need lots of drive space and thankfully Terabytes are cheaper than ever.
