I normaly store them on tape or dvd, then delete them. In addition, I
only write a frame to the trr file every 20-50 ps or so (in stead of 1
or 2 frames per ps for xtc).

None. As said, you loose the velocities and in addition you loose (some)
precision on the coordinates. Coordinates in xtc are stored in
nanometers with three decimal places. This is sufficient for all kinds
analysis that I am aware of.
