A quick Q which someone on here might already know the answer to
I've got loads of photos - too many, going back years, all a bit of a jumble. A mix of go pro, cameras, phones etc.
I'm trying to find time to delete duplicates, organise a bit better, get rid of junk, and think properly about long term storage
At the moment, I have a RAID array in my PC with mirrored hard drives, and my photos are in a OneDrive folder, so I've sort of got hard drive failure and fire/theft taken care of as short term back up goes
I've got a pile of blank DVDs
Would back up to DVD be worth doing ?
Do DVDs degrade over time ?
Can they be password protected or anything of that sort ?
Or should I just chuck them out ?
I know they are only small (remember when 4.7GB seemed a lot ?) but I wondered about burning folders or years or something to them as I get stuff sorted out a bit better and then putting them away off site somewhere
Any thoughts ?
[EDIT - just found a large stack of unused Maxell CD-R discs too ! Guess they are not much use for anything any more ?]
