What is the best way to backup or archive your P2 footage from 16GB cards for later use?

When I was using the 8GB cards it was an easy process of backing up the contents folder to a DVD+R DL disc. Now with the 16GB cards it's a bit trickier...I don't want to split the information.

I've been using toast on mac and it'll span it across 2 discs. I have a PC so I'm not limited to mac solutions

Is Blu Ray worth it?

I would suggest two external hard drives.

One is like a "virtual tape" that you use to back up our files.

The other is your normal media access that is your scratch disk for editing.

But if anything goes wrong, that back up is still there.

I use a Quantum LTO3a System for all of our archiving and it works great.
