Welcome to my #1 issue with tapeless workflow. I personally would pay extra for a digital camera that had the option to send to tape as well as P2. Anyway, I digress. It all really depends on how big your project is and how much of the original footage you think you may need in the future. We used to back everything up to DVD's until the HD era. Now everything is backed up to tape. To minimize the storage footprint we typically start off making a clip library of the footage and ditching the stuff we know we can't use. After that, pretty much everything is backed up.

I don't really have any particular tape system that I am really fond of. My only advice there is make two copies. Sometimes those tapes break and that 2nd copy has saved my arse many a time.
