I have a bunch of projects on a hard-drive for which I don't have the original tapes.
with the tapes it's easy to just delete the mov files and backup just the project files; but, having to keep all those files, how do I back up such a large amount of memory (many gigs per project)? ... I'm guessing this is a problem people who film straight to a disk are faced with too.
how do you archive when you don't own the raw footage tapes?

You can get an external hard drive. It just plugs into the USB port on your computer and you use it like a giant memory stick. or you could just get a bunch of memory sticks, or you could use disks (cds or floppys...cds are probably better though). I'd say out of all of those, your best bet would probably be an external hard drive/giant memory stick thing (i don't know if its actually called an external hard drive, but i'm pretty sure it is)
