    I'm currently in the process of archiving my drives by making two copies of them on two bare hard drives. What's a cost effective way to store the drives when finished? I was thinking of putting them back in the bag they came in (which I'm guessing are antimoisture and antistatic). Then either putting them in tupperware or the box they were shipped in which includes form fitting plastic slots.

    I reuse the bags and boxes the drives came in, myself. They fit perfectly into another longer box that I can grab in an instant if the place burns down.

    If you're looking for a suitable case (better than an anti-static bag), take a look here.

    BTW, the anti-moisture portion of the anti-static bag is the silica gel packet that was inside with the disk (and they don't last indefinitely). So you'd need to replace these on a regular basis (say monthly).

    I'm doing this myself right now. I've put them in new bags and also in the cardboxes they came in with some silica gel and a print out of the finder showing the contents. Labelled the box with a number and the date.
