"Thanks for the answer.

I'll close this question by saying the poster's solution might be worth exploring though I haven't tried it as I'm not in a position to invest in further storage.

I believe my solution is still worthwhile, and reasonable and there aren't hugely better solutions out there.

I've also put the footage onto my Lacie NAS 2BigDisk, 2Tb (2x1Tb disks), configured as 1Tb RAID1, ""Lacie Safe100"" mode.

I've also looked on the respected videohelp.com forum and here are some good answers:
