Easy 3 Step Backup

  1. Add Source folders or drives
  2. Add Destinations
  3. Start Backup

It’s even quicker next time you use that media as YoYottaID remembers your Backup volumes and folders.

Built in Project and Metadata Store

All media metadata is stored in a local database. An index of the project video, audio and metadata files will also be stored.
Use YoYottaID to catalog your drives, volumes and tapes.

Search for Assets

YoYottaID stores full media metadata including codec, resolution, duration. It’s quick to locate media and you can see where it’s stored. Open a virtual folder showing all the media from your search in one place. Make PDF reports from searches, handy to give the producer a list of shoot durations for all media types.

Simple Media Management

YoYotta’s software runs on Apple Mac hardware. On a production use a Mac mini or Retina MacBook Pro. Use an iMac or MacPro in a cutting room or post house. Connect using USB3 to Media Readers and Thunderbolt to RAID storage. Receive email alerts, create PDF Reports, ensure file permissions are set correctly.

Fast and Secure

As soon as camera cards or drives are connected they will appear on the left in the Media table. Source drives are mounted read-only preventing accidental erasure. YoYottaID calculates an MD5 checksum whilst copying and then verifies against this without any slowdown. See how long the backup will take. When completed the green ticks show that all is correct and a PDF report will keep an audit of the files copied.

Multiple Media and Backups

Cards can be copied to multiple Backup destinations simultaneously. Copy multiple cards at once, or add them to a card for sequential backup. Limited only by the speed of connected storage. Stop an import and pickup later. Span large backups across multiple volumes, disks and tapes.

Unlimited backup size

Start a large backup or archive that won’t fit on a single volume. YoYottaID will intelligently fill each volume without splitting shots. Keep adding volumes until the backup is complete. The reports and the database will keep track of where the shots are archived.
YoYottaID LTFS will span the backup across multiple tapes.
YoYottaID Automation makes it even easier using an LTO Tape Library to backup your SAN without needing to manually swap tapes.

Independent Verify

Each backup is now independently verified. This reduces the verify time.
Media cards can now be ejected and removed as soon as verifying starts.

Organise your Media

YoYottaID can make consistent folders based on Project, Day, Date, Camera and Media names. This will make life easy throughout your project. v2 has more flexible tokens for folder names. Presets are automatically recalled for different camera types.


YoYottaID creates a PDF report and this can be automatically emailed to all team members without needing to setup any email software. The report contains the media checksums for future reference along with media codec, duration and resolution. This metadata is also in the database and stored as extended attributes in the file directory.
