Thread Name: TECH: How long do CDRs last?
Subject: RE: TECH: How long do CDRs last?
Got more time now
In my exerience I have lost less than 5% of my floppies and there were plenty of duplications - a policy designed to protect against magnetic failures. The worst losses were in the days of using cassettes tapes - micro cassettes.
so my policy for achival will have to be a selection of brands and duplications. It is pretty important and is going to be a few Gigs of graphics. The only alternative to CDR is leaving it on the hard disk and the failure rate there is running at worse than 5%!
