  3. I wouldn't trust the use of DVD+/-RW or CD-RW for backups.

    That depends on the quality of the disc, how you handle it, and how
    you store it (and of course how many times you reuse it).

    Don't forget to use the verify option of your backup software.

    Personally I would recommend an external USB (or eSATA) hard drive.
    They are cheap enough these days.

    There is no point. Write-once discs are cheaper, faster to write, and more
    reliable. There is no need to use rewritables for backups.

    CD RAM are used for long time backups..

    Plus you can get Gold CD/DVD with 100/80year life time..

    So Please do some research..

    Well Roger, the archival data integrity of any CD or DVD would likely be a
    greater period than that for one of your nym's.

    DVD-RAM in its flip Case has a 100 year life span and it used by the medical profession to archive
    data.,.

    Never tried it. But it's still not as reliable as write-once, and it's less
    common, therefore more expensive. So why bother?
