Hi ,

i always ask myself the same question over and over again .

Do i really " need " all of them , just because i clicked them ???

And almost in 90 % cases ,  delete them.

Make it around 97% for me

I am not an authority ,as far as photography is concerned , but , then , it has to be your decision on " to keep or not to keep ??? "

Agreed! Unless you're working with a creative team... in which case some decisions may be "collective"

BTW , how much space you do have? I have 5 HDD's ( in raid )  2 TB's each on my desktop and  05 External HDD's of 2TB's each for backup.

That much space is sufficient for me at least.

For data, I have 2 internal 3TB disks (not in RAID) and 2 external 3TB disks. Plus I back up the best RAWs on Carbonite. I also have 3 much smaller SSDs: 1 for Windows and apps, 1 for PS scratch and 1 for image sets that are work in progress.

So far I've got plenty of room But 2 days ago I've played with an Hasselblad for the first time and suddenly everything is smaller by a factor of 3
