I was sure to find it here at the forum, but no discussion about that so far. I have the following problem:
I have to archive (long-term) around 3.2GB of data which consists of 50kB to 150kB files only. It’s 20,000 little files or something like that!
Can I do this as I do my other, more normal stuff, namely simply burn as UDF 1.02 to an MCC004 without any packing to a zero-compression zip file?
Compressed zips are not even an option for me personally in any case, and normally I don’t use non-compressed zips for archiving either. For some reason I worry about my data when packing them to archives. I don’t know why.
Is there any danger/risk to not pack the files to a non-compressed .zip? Or is it in this case an absolute must for long-term data life because of the huge and complex FAT or anything else? Would there be a real technical advantage for long-term data life if I made one or a few uncompressed zips?
It’s very important and this time I don’t know how to handle this special case. Thank you so much for reading.
