[filmscanners] Re: Advice on scanner settings

I font follow your reason for rejecting DVDs. Granted at
4 GBytes, they aren't big these days.

I used to backup to CD, but
it's as useless as floppies given today's data
DVD I don't trust for anything that can't be rewritten fr
somewhere else. I used to use tape at one time, but D
AT (and DAT drives)
proved less reliable than the HDD's
I was backing up. DLT is supposedly
excellent but costly
, and by then I hated tape.

I got fed up messing with
optical disks, tapes etc and nowadays I just
have the wh
ole lot on RAID3, backed up to HDD, backed up again to HD
D and
stored offsite. Lots of redundancy is cheaper and
HDD's are easier to
manage  automatically (so backups ge
t done), and easier to store and
restore. I've evolved t
his over about 5 years and never lost a byte
(except thr
ough my own stupidity), despite many HDD failures.
