You might be able to copy recordings off the Sky Q drive onto your PC and then other an external hard drive for keeping. However if they are encrypted channels you cannot watch them without copying them back onto a drive and putting it into the Sky Q box.
is the software to use but I don't know if it works with Sky Q, it works on Sky + but it depends if they have change the software and file types used.
EDIT according to a few posts on SkyUser, at least on the German Sky Q equivalent the file system format used is completely different to on Sky+HD so the above won't work.
