The issue as I see it is that depending on what you shoot on, there are two sets of data to archive a) the Raw camera files from the shoot (in my case P2) and b) the Quicktime files generated by FCP.

If I have to re-cut any sequences I prefer to have the ingested ProRes Quicktime files as I am never sure that re-ingesting from the shot masters (in this case my P2 footage) is a secure workflow. I could be wrong as I have never had to do this yet.

Perhaps the solution is to buy two cheap USB disks and archive to these. But then again trusting my content to cheap media also seems like a dumb thing to do.

The bottom line is that for a small production company storage is major and on-going expense!

Still keen to hear about better ideas!
