What better place to store long-term CD and DVD? a room all closed with no windows and dark or a room with an open door ventilated during the morning and afternoon?

Its “best” not to use optical media for “long term storage” at all unless you have it set up with multiple copies and regular verification.

That said: cool and dark.

I see you’re still hunting after absulute values and confirmations to ease your mind…but as I told you before,no-one can guarantee what you’re after…even God can’t…:bigsmile:
So either move on with your life,and try to make the best out of your storage conditions,or pinpoint yourself to goals you won’t ever reach and which will keep you out of sleep…

Don´t expose them to direct sunlight, don´t store them in sleeves and they will probably last long.
Backups and verification are strongly recommended.:wink:

I tested with nero DiscSpeed

I have 2 cds of smartbuy brand and they had errors in test

I have 2 dvds philips and they showed no error in the test 100% good

cds and dvds were stored in the same location

because they showed different results?
