[Robert Bracken] "With p2 I don't know what to do. The file sizes are unruly. Since fcpx handles mp4 so well, I would like to archive it in that format.

Disagree with hard drives all you want. You are going to have to learn the P2 workflow or move to a different camera such as the JVC which records in mp4.

P2 files size are large because they have a higher bit rate compered to HDV, XDCAM EX, AVCHD, etc... Higher bit rate=better quality

I have used the hard drive technique for over 4 years and have yet to lose a drive. My data is backed up twice.

LTO or SSD are options but are very expensive.
