Ever wondered how long a digital storage device last vs prints?
Here are some interesting findings:
- Magnetic data and cassette tapes: 10-20 years
- Floppy Disk: 10-20 years
- CDs and DVDs: 5-10 unrecorded 2-5 recorded
- Blu-Ray: Not certain, probably over 2-5 recorded
- M-Disc: 1,000 years (theoretically)
- Hard Disk: 3-5 years
- Flash Storage: Depends on write cycles, 5-10 years or more
PRINTS and albums: 100-300 years.
Which makes it the best and perfect option for family’s heirlooms!
