Michael, the RAW file is your negative, your original. It has all of the sensor information.

NEVER delete a RAW file unless you never want that image.

I understand that you have images processed to the point of perfection. But perfection is subjective, and your taste will subtly change over time, and a year or two down the road you may look an an image and say, "What if…"

Even more likely: RAW converters will continue to improve. PP software — notably the ability to make local selections and tweaks — will improve. You might want to go back and "improve" some of those older, perfect images.

For example, when Lightroom finally gets the Photoshop Content-Aware Clone Tool, don't you have images that would have benefitted from a bit of cloning had you been able to but you were too lazy to export to Photoshop? Hmmm.

NEVER delete a RAW file unless you never want that image.

BTW, you've convinced me. I'm not buying a Drobo.
