Back in the days of archiving to CD-R I went through a case of HHB disks. (discs?). Those disks have all failed. The backups were HHB as well. A few years back when you could still rent dvds I rented the first season of MI5. A number of these commercial disks wouldn't play because they were coming apart, the layers were separating.
100 years my ass!
I live in a very dry part of Canada and the very first CD-R I burned still plays. Was branded "Yamaha" but I'm sure they didn't make it.
I chime in here every once in a while and say "M-Disc" for archival media. :headbang:
Doesn't solve the "need ancient drive and platform" problem although if you are truly concerned you start squirreling away equipment. I'm not concerned, but I do archive to M-disc in case someone else is.
