I am actually telling myself... Oh no, I've been watching him for years now and I didn't notice that he has a tatoo! But then you spill it out... I was like... Ok, nothing's wrong with me. ^_^

Matt, this is the history of your growth as an artist and profissional. There's nothing wrong about keeping those. Actually, I say you SHOULD keep them: throwing those beautiful years of hard work away would be equal to an artist scrapping all their hard work of music production, or a HQ maker putting his/her copies of every single volume on the trash bin.
Keep it. It's the proof of your growth. One day, with your ever increasing fame, you may even sell them for some millions if you really, really grow tired of them. But even so, I would tell you to keep your live past at hand.

Any chance you can go over your file system and naming to stay organized and even be able to find that footage at all?

Just compress all the videos to 1080p or so... That'll help you reduce the number of harddrives

Hard drives can degrade over time, look if you can back them up on google (1080p only, with tiny bit of compression) photos for free!

Somethings are good to hoard!👍 Some of the things u hoard do come in handy in case of emergencies!👍 That's why I don't throw away everything that seems old & useless. Like Matt, I hoard old cords & chargers & they do come in handy! 😎👍😁

Hey Matt. You should check out EpisVox's video about saving space that was taken up by old video projects. He created a script that would do computer magic and shrink the files without losing quality. Could help to downsize the number of drives you have if that's something you would want to do.

We actually did a video recently called "10 Things Filmmakers Should Do While Working From Home" which includes how we have archived and backed up about 8 years worth of video project files and footage (for over 2000 video projects) to save space without needing tons of external hard drives. If you're interested, feel free to give it a watch!

Matt, If You Want To Minimize The Amount Of External Hard Drives You Have You Can Get A 48TB Hard Drive. However It Is Very Expensive, It Is Around $10,000. There Are Also 20TB Hard Drives For Around $3,000. These Drives Are So Expensive Because They Are Ment For Companies That Work On Digital Things Like Google.

Try to use the fake one. They look natural and we can sometimes request to see your bicep without them.
