Sorry if the below issues have been bought up a number of times, this is my first post in this forum. Just some questions that I have been pondering recently. I wish to back up my photos on my PC, about 60GB, and growing. Shall I backup the data onto DVD-RAM, or hdd? The reason that I asked because DVD-RAM media is still very expensive, and hdd is very affordable nowadays. However, I am not sure if I did not access the data on hdd once in a while, will the data be lost? If I did not turn on the hdd often, will it spoilt easily? In addition, it is very difficult to find DVD-RAM media, therefore, I am thinking whether if it is worth the money in investing in DVD-RAM media. Will DVD-RAM RIP soon? For your info, I am using Benq DW1670, so any media, except BlueRay and HD (or HDD?) should not be an issue to me. Please feel free to suggest any media should you think it is better. Thanks for reading, and hope to hear from you experts.
