Technology is playing an increasingly important role in every aspect of our lives. Every day we create more and more digital memories which are stored on smart phones, computers, hard drives, social media and cloud accounts. We all have digital files that are just too important to lose; photographs of our wedding, videos our children walking for the first time or our business accounts and tax returns. But most people give little thought to how permanent these digital files are, or the unthinkable consequences of losing them.
Losing digital files forever is very easy to do. We all know someone whose laptop or hard drive has failed and has lost everything or faced a big bill to recover their data. The problem is that most types of digital storage are not designed to last beyond five to ten years:
Are perfect for day to day storage of lots of digital files. But a large number of mechanical parts mean they are susceptible to failure.
Make sharing and moving digital files easy. But they are very easy to lose and most flash chips can retain data for just ten years.
Means you can access what you need from any device anywhere in the world. But where is your data, will it always be there and who else can access it?
Only optical media is durable enough to protect your most valuable digital files and memories for the long term and Verbatim MDISC is the most durable of all. Verbatim MDISC combined with a 3-2-1 back up strategy is the complete solution to keep your digital life safe for ever.
