    Well, there's several ways you could do that... You could back it up on a dvd disc, on a flash drive or other memory card, or you could go out and buy an external hard-drive for your comp and only connect it to your comp when saving files. Dvds would be the cheapest way to go, but they are easily scratched, cracked or broken; Flash drives are much more durable and come with different memory capabilities but you could end up like my husband and I... we have 10 of them and can never remember which pics or vids are on which one; But, if you have the money, you can buy an external hard drive with a lot more memory, and you could save and back up much more than just your family videos.

    As Amanda Suggested you can back up your data on a DVD or an External Hard Drive.
    My Suggestion is to Have at least 3 back up copies or videos put together in a folder.
    2 Back Up Copies in two separate DVDs and 1 Copy in Hard Drive to Access it as and when you need it.
    Keep the original Copy on your computer Hard Drive too, just in case.

    Any critical, important Data, like videos, pictures, documents, spreadsheets should be backed up well, at least three copies just to make sure that if one backup system fail you have a "back up of a back up" to make sure you have your Data Secure.

    The pain in backing up data and creating copies is nothing compared to the pain when you loose the data.

    Keeping extra copies of the video on your hard drive as back up is quickest, cheapest way to do this. But, video tends to take up a lot of space, so some other option is definitely in order.

    The option I think to be the best is to put it on an external hard drive, and possibly another. Sure, you'll spend 60 to 100 or more dollars. But you'll find it to be the best way to organize content and protect the integrity and quality of the video.

    I wouldn't reccomend flash drives. Many don't have adequete space to store a lot of video. Not to mention, a careless yank of the flash drive from your computer may wipe all the data.

    You can also use CD, DVD, or even Blu-ray disc (if you have the rights means) and even tape. However, blank discs can be very tricky and evil. Some DVD discs will decay after a period of only 10 years. Your option then is to either purchase really high-quality blank discs and hope for the best, or print to tape and take very good care of the tape. If tapes are stored any place other some place cool, dark, and dry, you may have generations of the tape fade out. The only other problem with tape just might be that the technology to use tape will become scarce over the years.
