When do you delete your original footage?

I normally cut the video and remove the original, what about you?

I never delete them until it’s totally useless and I know that I am not going tu use it again. And it apso gives a piece of mind if you have the original media for best quality.

Edit:- Partly, the reason being that I have cloud storage subscriptions, they are very helpful, except the fact that google is continuously killing stuff, like podcasts app, I don’t know how long will drive remain, so I use dropbox and iCloud too with the same data backed up. I am also every now and then investing on good HDD’s that I know will last substantially better. Some of them are slow, but yeah, if it has a bigger lifespan written on the box, I am ready to sacrifice speed.
