Default Archiving and hard drives

Macintouch readers are having a fascinating and far-ranging discussion of hard drives and archiving strategies.

Included in the somewhat meandering thread: whether activity affects the life of a drive (someone commented that once you start using a drive, it must be used regularly); testing for bad sectors, whether they are mapped out properly; mechanical reliability, data reliability; is tape more durable over time; how accessible will your data be in 5 years, 10 years; discussion of power supplies, data formats, archive media (CD, DVD, blu-ray, as well as tape and hard drives; and much more.
