With storage being less than .30 a GB in many cases it makes more sense to just import entire tapes, and use the same drive to archive. If you budget $50 for a 100 GB project just for storage, and charge $150 you make $120 on not having to ever recapture that media. 12 years ago when NLE was getting going, storage was over a $1000 per GB, and it wasn't cost effective to back up to a drive. In 2008 we can give our tape mechanisms a break and just ingest the entire tape. With the DV start stop feature of Final Cut Pro, you can separate the clips into subclips, and have all your clips with plenty of handles. Capturing the whole tape also gives you B roll that you don't expect to use, but as a project comes to a close you find the clip you wouldn't have batch captured, but it is the perfect clip to fill your need.
