<nettime> Data archiving for artists?

Just wondering - 

How do you all save your data for your personal archives?

I'm just not sure how stable all my old films and videos are.  I use BluRay disks to backup raw footage from more recent projects, but a lot of my stuff is just on redundant hard drives that I copy once in a while. A few major things are in regional library collections and distribution where they are safer.

Older projects are on tape, which has a longer shelf life than SD cards, USB sticks or HDD, but still dubious in the very long term.

Does anyone have efficient / affordable strategies for keeping their life's work safe?  I'm talking many gigabytes of raw footage, video masters, project files, etc.
