    iMovie and storage of work done -and storage in general

    Hi I'm new here as just got iPad 3 weeks ago

    Am loving iMovie as have 2 young kids and it's great editing almost as soon as I have shot. ( didn't do this on iMac and have hours and hours that I want to edit.

    My question is - where would you all store the fished work and work in progress.?

    For my mac stuffs it is all on separate h-drives but I am paranoid of these things failing.

    Is iCloud an option . Seems expensive as I have already used my free space and I haven't done much

    What are the options .? Pros and cons?
    I am looking at this not just to free up space but more important to preserve the movies

    Cheers
    Rich

    Yes, I essentially output my movies back to my PC for storage on either my internal or external drives or my NAS.

    Thanks - but what is you opinion on the statement

    " all hard drives die - the only question is when " I'm no expert , but this is what I am told .

    I am talking about vids of my son and daughter from 1 day old, so want to be as safe as possible.

    I do have it all on time machine nd a separate hard drive, call me paranoid but I am still orried about losing this stuff

    What is the safest option .?

    You can use both optical and magnetic stuff. The point is that you copy optical discs every 5-10 years (assuming you're using quality(!) DVD's); with HDD's, every, say, 3 years. This is what most people do.

    I keep at least two backups of everything, one on an external HD and then everything on an Apple Time Capsule, that way, along with the original I have three copies of everything. I am anal about backing up but I figure it's better to be safe than sorry.

    Yeah I agree - I guess I was trying to over complicate things - looking at iCloud or YouTube etc.
    But I guess if I organise myself I can simply copy DVDs every 4 or so years -

    Any recommendations - I am looking to copy completed iMovie projects ?

    Forget DVDs. For movies I just copy from USB drive to USB drive. They are getting cheaper and faster all the time. Never spend a lot of money on drives but always have more than one backup on different offline drives with one in a safety deposit box or somewhere offsite such as relatives that are not in the same house.

    It's much easier to keep drives sync'd up than to keep multiple DVDs up to date.
