What files do you keep after a project?

I completed my thesis December 2012 and have over 40 GB of files. What does everyone typically keep from a successful run? What combination of files completely describes work completed while minimizing file size?
I have 6 transient runs, each using the pimpleDyMFoam solver.

Assuming I do not want to restart my transient case in the future:
You can also run steps 1, 2 and 4, than zip everything into one big zipfile, but the zipping might be quite long, and if your zip is corrupted, you loose everything...

Following up on what Marcel posted: If you use the compress option in your controlDict, there is no point in zipping your data. Use tar instead (or, if you really want a zip file, --compression-method store).
Also useful: pyFoamPackCase.py
