Keeping every photo vs just the selects?

after done processing the keepers (goes into the NAS), bye bye raws, only rated stay. Many of the Rated arent even processed. The way I see it, I may have 1 TB of keepers after a decade, vs 10-20TB. I know I'de rather manage backups of a single Terabyte over 10-20.

another strategy I do to manage size is that if I'm shooting an event or home snapshots, I'll simply use a dng converter on import to get me a 10MP file (so fast working on 5Dish like files, but with all the benefits of dynamic range and high iso), then work from there. I generally reserve full 42mp raws for my personal landscape shooting or shots intended on big prints.

the thought of going back over half a million photos makes me sick to my stomach.

It's tedious but I'm making progress. It takes me about an hour per 10K. I've currently done 2008-2011. The earlier years were harder because my flags had disappeared. For 2011 and on it looks like my flags are there so I can fairly quickly identify which ones to delete.
