Data Archival

With the talk of CD life, I was contemplating saving data
(including all my old software, ie MS/IBM DOS 1.1 -> 6.22).

Also, we've begun to digitize the family pictures.

It seems to me that nowadays we buy new hard drives with a few
times more capacity every year or two. We also have several
computers, many networked (at home, this is).

I think that we may just keep all the info on hard drives, with
an occasional CD-R backup, and it will get duplicated so many
times over the years that we would be hard pressed to lose any

Music/Video may be another story...
