Database management – Important

Do note that DaVinci Resolve 17.0 and 17.1 require a database upgrade from DaVinci Resolve 16.2.7 and previous versions. Blackmagic Design strongly recommends users back up their existing database (both DiskDB and PostgreSQL) and then restore that database for the upgrade before upgrading to this release.
