archiving...

I am currently archiving thousands of photos {thousands is an under stated....scanning 35mm film, scanning heritage photos, post processing my personal photos that have sat on my drives with no where to go...  in the mindst of archiving saved photos on CDs, I would say that 5% of those photos became corrupted and unattainable...goes to show, that a sole means of archiving is not the way to go.  I do utilize a triage system for archiving:  CD, external hard drive, and online archival site.  Once everything becomes snug and "safe" - yet that word doesn't mean 100% proof...hard copies will be made - albums, photos, boxes, etc.   Memories need to be preserved, otherwise why take a picture, right?
