I've been using DVD+R media for years, but with files getting larger, I'm finding DVD+R harder to backup files with and a pain when I have to split files up.
So that's why I've been researching about backing up data using DVD+DL and came in with the mindset that disc media was not only the cheapest, but the most reliable way to go about backing up data.
But as I researched some more, I found out how many problems DVD+DL meida have compared to DVD+R and that the cost ratio might even be neutralized between that of the external/hard drive enclosures.
So I was wondering what everyone's take is on backing up media. Should I still go the route of disc media and move on to DVD+DL or should I make a jump to external/hard drive enclosures. The thing is I find disc media more friendly if I suddenly have an urge to access specific data, but I'm worried that if I do so with an external/hard drive enclosure, they will wear out faster than disc media.
Thank you for your time.
