Ok. I moved over to hard drive storage with a USB3 docking station
some time ago. Reason is that most of the stuff i have, like 80-90% is none
important data. I have it indexed with a program (whereisit) but moving
to wincatalog soon. If I loose data it is not the end of the world as most
of the stuff I have you can buy if you wanted to.
But I have some pictures, videos and other things I would like to stor
on a secondary optical media as backup, if the dedicated backup
hard drive does fail. Of course I will get a new hard drive when the
current one becomes to old.
I have been looking at archival media, DVDR and BDR for storage
of mostly personal data, video, pictures etc. Not sure if
storing pictures on gold CDs would be a better and more secure
Is it worth getting Verbatim DVDR Archival grade media, is
that better than say, regular good quality Verbatim DVDR media ?
Is it better to burn important data to archival grade DVDR
or even good quality regular BDR. Even if there are more
I worry that BDR can fail at least what I have been reading
in the forums here over the years, that media quality is
problematic and also hardware when it comes to BDR or burning
bluray. I guess the move from CD to DVD was not problematic
in terms of media and technology. But with BluRay it is another
Is there any problem with burning CDs and DVDs on say a modern
panasonic bluray burner or is the quality the same across
the different media, when using good quality media ?
This is a place I could get media from but they do not seem
to have any panasonic any more, but they do have kodak gold cds
