Digital archiving; Preparing for the worst… preparing for the futureWritten by Jay Corrao – Copyright 2005
What would happen if one day basement flooded, or God forbid, your house was to burn down or any other natural disaster were to strike your home? You may have homeowners, fire, flood, or disaster insurance. Your home may be rebuilt, furniture and appliances replaced; but what about you’re precious memories; photos, slides, personal videos, home movies, audio, and important documents? They could be gone forever. In fact if you were to ask anyone who has ever experienced such a tragedy they would tell you that most painful part of surviving such a disaster short of losing a loved one is loss of precious memorabilia. Fortunately I have not had to endure this kind of loss first hand but I have had friends who have experienced such a loss. It soon struck me how important it really is to for people to protect what is truly important in their lives…they’re memories.
The answer to this dilemma is really very simple. Digitally back-up your precious photos, videos, documents and other items dear to you and store them in a safe place. I know this is easier said then done. Many people don’t have time, energy or know how to undertake such an endeavor. That’s where services of an experienced digital archiver can be invaluable. Professional Digital Archivers can take your valued memorabilia and save it digitally to high quality, long lasting DVD media which has an estimated shelf life of 75 years or more.
Securing your precious memories from disaster is not only reason to digitally archive your precious memorabilia. Wouldn’t you like to keep all of your cherished photos, slides, videos, home movies and documents intact and unchanged for generations to come? Digitally archived items remain unaltered. What is saved today will look same years from now. Paper documents yellow, photos fade, and video deteriorates. You cannot count on these objects to survive test of time but you can count on you’re digital archive to.
