      I keep all of my RAW files. I always have an external hardrive connected to my Comp when editing, everything is saved and transferred automatically once PE is done. Every session/shoot is saved in its own file/subfolder, so if i need to look back 3 years at a specific event, i can hit a simple search and it pops up. when full, i purchase another 59 dollar 1TB ext hard drive. Some back up each hard drive, with me, if one hard drive is life, i dont like making my life too difficult. Its nice to edit all photos, then export (i usually walk away while this can take an hour depending on the amount of photos edited), pull card out, format in camera and cycle continues.
