video storage

I've given up on compressing my videos. Most compression software doesn't compress batches of files, and those that do usually lose meta-data, like datetime. It also requires a ton of processing, which is slow and heats up my computer (this incidentally explains why my Canon digicams keep them in bulky formats, AVI or MOV: they are not nearly powerful enough to run compression).

So I've been moving my videos to my external G-Drive. But this 750GB drive, which also serves as a backup for my machine, is nearly full. This means that I have two problems:

* buy more space to store my videos.
* buy more space to have a backup of these videos.

I could buy 2x 2TB drives, but this is likely to be expensive.

Any suggestions?
