Just curious, why do you keep the LR edited jpegs when they can always be reproduced?

since LR saves all the operations no need to save the jpegs. If I have edit in Photoshop, then I save those files as tiffs.

Now that you've mentioned this, I just realized that I'm not keeping my LR settings since after editing the RAW files and exporting to .JPG, I remove the folders from LR, and then move the RAW files to a "backup" RAW images folder elsewhere on the drive.

I've never gone back to a RAW image to re-touch it, but maybe I should think about this further (it would be nice to have that ability).

The reason why I burn/keep .JPGs is mostly because they're easier to view over my home network (the RAW files usually take a couple of seconds to load, whereas the .jpg's load very quickly). I also often shoot multiple takes of the same shot, and process the best take in LR (essentially, the processed .jpg's are the "final takes" for each folder).
