Hi smackdaddy,

I'm copying the raw video files straight from 128 GB SD cards onto Seagate portable 1.5 TB external USB drives

(http://www.amazon.com/Seagate-FreeAgent-Ultra-Portable-External-STAA1500100/dp/B00455MCRA/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1378477408&sr=8-6&keywords=seagate+1.5+tb)

From there I'm processing the video with Apple's Final Cut Pro X video editing software and in the process backing up those files onto a Drobo 8 TB RAID array.

The Drobo drive has fault tolerance in that if any of the 4 2 TB drives in it fails, then I don't loose any data. I can swap out the bad drive with a new one and rebuild it.

From there I'm backing up everything onto a second mirror Drobo drive.

We better get to Ireland soon because we're almost out of disk space!

Happy sailing!
