Re: filmscanners: Another Mission Completed
I store them in their Jewel Cases, in a cool part of my home. I usually
do two copies. I suppose if they were totally unreplacable, I'd either
store one at another location, or buy a fire resistant locked safe/cabinet.
I'd suggest they be checked once a year or two for degrading. When they
are stored in the jewel cases, I always make sure the front is blocked
with some sort of paper/card to make sure they aren't exposed to light.
I suspect the major storage issues are heat, light and dampness. The
less of each the better.
