When it comes to backing up your organization’s data it is important to remember how valuable microfilming in Ontario can be when compared to digital media. Microfilming in Ontario has been around for over a century and has remained virtually the same. Digital storage devices, although convenient and able to store mass amounts of data, can be unreliable at times and may be inaccessible in fifty, or even twenty years time.
Remember tape drives or the 10 inch floppy drive? If you are old enough to remember these early digital storage devices and have data stored on them, you probably also know how difficult it can be to retrieve the information off of these devices. Since then, we have seen different types of internal and external hard drives, CD and DVD formats, USB “jump” drives, solid state drives, and the list goes on. As digital storage devices continue to evolve, there is no way to tell how you easily you will be able to retrieve the data on these devices in the future.
