    Digitisation is great but unless the technology has vastly improved in the last couple of years (I haven't heard that it has) you do still need to migrate your digital media from time to time.

    How often that is recommended I am uncertain of but I did have a scare with the CDs burnt for my first set of digital photos when on long service leave 8 years ago. I was having difficulty accessing some of the photos only 5 years later, but when I upgraded my laptop, I was able to access the photos again (so at that point I copied them).

    You can have a situation where the VHS tape has greater longevity than the DVD you burn. I know the day will come when we can't play back videos in the original format and for other reasons given above, there are pluses for digitization, however I would quite like to know what the company says about long-term access to our memorabilia.

    Yes, the dyes used on many DVDs are not archival. I've digitised over 4000 slides, colour corrected them on Photoshop and have them digitally stored on 3 separate hard drives.
    I used a Canon scanner for these, and also did my old photo albums. I sent a copy of kid's pics to each of them. Not sure they appreciated them though!

    As Hard Drives are so big now, they don't take up a lot of space, not expensive and they're easy to catalog on the computer; THEN BACK THEM UP. Do this as you work, and then a final, corrected copy. I find making COPIES rather than back-ups more reassuring as I can access them easily, or add a new file.

    Hard drives of more than 1or 2 Terrabytes (Tb) are common now, and one can be stored away from the house, in a watertight container, with some drying agent to avoid humidity. If the house goes, you've still got your copies!!

    Sounds good. I'm sure the kids will appreciate their pics in years to come!

    I forgot to add this: As the price of USBs comes down every month, and their size increases, it is now possible to store a lot of information on a 32Gb USB.

    This is a safe way of storing information, as it is not magnetic. Just lock the USB to prevent accidental deletions, label it clearly, and store it in a safe place, with a copy away from the house.

    Okay, I've scanned away all old photos and have newer digital ones and placed in folders. I have Windows 7 and using My Pictures. How can I label them so they are in chronological order - tried 860814, 861022, etc. so year, month, date to no avail. Any ideas? Ta!
