I have a lot of movies on my computer and need to free up memory.  What is the best solution, if I think I may need these movies in the future?

I'm an elementary music teacher and my students perform regularly so I have a lot of their performances on my computer.  Now I need to free up memory so am wondering what the best solution would be, given that I may need access to these movies again in the future.


I do have an external hard drive, but have never been able to figure out if you can store movies on it, instead of on the computer hard drive.


Thanks so much!

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8), also have iMovie and iDVD
