    Restoring "Avid NEXIS Bins" history

    Everytime we move a system and the MCState or z folder gets reset, our project loses the history in the "Avid NEXIS Bins" folder.  Is there a way to backup or restore and not go through this inconvenience of losing these bins every single reset?

    What do you mean by move a system? Can you elaborate? Also, do you mean the project state reverts to as if it is a new project?

    Sorry, this seems rather extraneous information to the issue at hand, but if I must: our "editing solution provider" moved one of our systems from a basement location to a first floor location and after the move the "Avid NEXIS Bins" history was wiped.  I suspect they did some sort of reset or refresh when checking on the system after the move.  I would like to know a way to preserve a system's "Avid NEXIS Bins" history -- whatever the cause of it's elimination may be -- because that shortcut folder of bins is a valuable productivity tool to an editing workflow.

    it sounds like the bins in question are being used via file->open bin. I would expect those to disappear if the computer name is changed (new settings folder in the project), or if the mcstate or user setting is changed.
