I bought a 1T external harddrive* on a whim** the other day, and I must say it's useful. I set it up on a firewire port, threw a lot of video on it and waited to see how it felt (as in, could I trust it). Feels fine, so I deleted a lot off my internal drive and for some things save directly to the external one. For the first time in ages I have 260 free gigs*** on my computer, and more gets moved each day.
I am a bit packratty but it's because I get people contacting me saying, "You know that X you did for me in 200x? Could you change the x?" Or for, say, the Combat Cards video. CC is now totally different. I hung on and hung on to the video components because I felt at some point it would need a redo and starting from scratch is a pain. If all goes well I'll be able to replace the card images, swap out part of the soundtrack with new, and add/condense a few things, then rebake to a higher quality than was useable on yootoob back in the day.
*Most of my shopping is either accomplished in 3-5 minutes or not accomplished at all, since it tires me incredibly.
***includes 19gigs of video I just shot of the Bitstream Boogie trio.
