Hi,

My usual workflow when dealing with Panasonic P2 or Sony SxS cards is to copy the entire card onto my external hard drive, then in FCP perform "log and transfer", then back up both the raw card data and the ingested .mov files from the hard drive to another drive.

Is it worth keeping the P2 or SxS card data, once I have the clips ingested and backed up?

YES!
If you can keep ALL of the data you can. Hard drives are cheap... reshooting is not. You never know what can go wrong, ya know.

I speak as someone who has lost all his footage (and gotten it back after some expense) due to back-up failures (2 drives!)
