Remember the 5 ¼” floppy disk? If you’re old enough to have used them and have any left, do you think you can easily find a computer to access their data?
Microfilm has remained the same since its inception for the most part. A light source and magnifier is all that’s needed in this technology. Just think – you’re able to read microfilm documents from the turn of the century. You probably couldn’t do the same if they were paper formats.
And, just like the 5 ¼” floppy disk, do you think you’ll be able to read your flash drive 10 or 20 years from now? Many computer technologies have become obsolete in short order. Today, the only way you can be assured of accessing your data well into the future is to use archive writing in Ontario.
