Archiving FS100 Footage

Had my first big shoot with the FS100 yesterday. Importing footage into FCP7 (via Log & Transfer), transcoding to ProRes. I'd like to archive the clips on the card, but I'd like a more elegant solution than making a disk image of the card. (I sometimes shoot for more than one client on a card.)

Can I save just certain parts of the card? I haven't quite decoded the clip structure yet.

Re: Archiving FS100 Footage

For each job and each day offload the clips to a hard drive and name that folder for the job and day.
I would suggest copying to at least 2 different hard drives. My approach would be to use 2 working drives and 1 archive (whatever media you are comfortable with). We use red and green tape to ID the card holders as to whether the have been downloaded and checked. (Green). Shot but not downloaded. (Red.)

Format the cards in Camera for the next job/day. Ready to shoot. Sometimes we shoot enough to have to download during the day and the red/green tape helps keep the photographer and editor from going crazy about what card has been shot and what has been downloaded and is ready to be formatted and used in the camera.

I would not keep footage from two different clients on the card without downloading and archiving. Save everything in the folder and don't alter the structure.
