When you create a DVD backup for your files you think that it's a permanent backup solution. Think again! The old discs (CD/DVD/Blu Ray) suffer from natural decay and degradation. Current discs technology (CD/DVD/Blu Ray) uses organic dyes and low laser power to make marks on the data layer of a standard recordable disc. This means your data from CD/DVD/Blu Ray are not in safe, as you thought. Discs have an average lifespan of only about 3 to 5 years that's why your data stored on CD/DVD/Blu Ray could be lost. Why would you risk your data based on an average; hundreds of discs taken into account in that average were corrupt and unreadable after only a few months. Millenniata will never let you down, when we say write once and read forever, we mean it.
