Re: [AV Media Matters] Digitizing Audio and Video-ReallyBigPost

I have been looking into the storage media issue for my own work, and my road has led me to AIT tape drives from a number of sources. I have friends who have audio stored on computer tape for over 10 years (not exercised) and have found great reliability. I wish I could say the same for CDs...

The three largest manufacturers of HDDs are Seagate, Maxtor and
Digital.  All three of these companies have spent a lot of time and
increasing the reliability of their HDDs.  They have solved the head
problem and the bearing problem.  I am not aware of any other major
mechanism.  They all use auto-tracking which I invented in 1976.

I have been attending Storage Trade Shows and Conferences and have
learned a
lot about HDDs and LTOs.

All archives must develop a plan for making backups of all electronic
and storing them off-site.
