Why it's going cold.......?

Thanks for your deal. I've added the image for you

Think DVD's are getting used a lot less these days, even finding new computers that do not include CD/DVD drive. I personally think that important data is safer on DVD's than pendrives or even hard drives. Benefit of a DVD backup is you can make multiple copies that are only read only after burning. In the case of anything really important have a copy offsite as well.
One trick is to slow down the speed when burning. The computer will probably suggest 48 - choose 8 instead. I know it takes a lot longer, but just walk away - a watched pot never boils!

anyone got a deal on betamax videos?

Does anyone know where these are made? Verbs made in Taiwan/Singapore have been great but I hear bad reports on those from India/Egypt.

I use DVDs for backup all the time. I've had hard drives fail a lot more often than DVDs.

Have a failed DVD and you loose 4.5gb of data. Have your hard drive failed and you loose ALL your data on it. It's crazy to backup on a hard drive (unless you backup a DVD).

Cold. So last century. Decent NAS devices are so cheep these days as are portable multi-terabyte drives it just doesn't make sense to use DVD for backups it's way to expensive in time, space and per GB. Add to this you usually have the biggest losses just when your last DVD backup is at it's oldest, because Murphy never sleeps.

So get a NAS and some backup software, schedule it. Then if you are really paranoid get the backup to do a copy to a portable drive and if doubly paranoid rotate it with your brother/sister/anyone-else once a week. If you so paranoid about your data then get it to copy to some cloud storage too. All of it is automatic and it will never forget to do it because as sure as night follows day the time you forget to do your manual DVD process is the time Murphy will strike to so use a computer for what it's really good at the regular boring crap that we invented them to do for us.

If you manage to lose data then you are the unluckiest SOG ever and I feel for you But seriously come into the 21st century please.

That's all well and good. What if I want to copy some video onto a DVD, to play on a DVD player?
And going by your reasoning, if you're really paranoid, you could also do everything you just said, and burn to a DVD to be extra safe. And since you're using so many "what if" scenarios, surely they can all be turned around and applied to the mediums you have suggested.

These days, highly likely it's India or even China. Unfortunately there is no way of knowing just by looking at SKUs and Model numbers. My personal experience, I've had just as many bad Singapore discs as Indian ones (not many).

good find op, heat added

The whole burning slow myth is just that, a myth that's continuing to perpetuate itself on the internet. It really doesn't apply these days where both drives and discs are optimised to burn at higher speeds. It may make a difference on cheaper/poorer quality media. But generally, burning slow is detrimental, not beneficial. The best speed to burn at, is usually a midway point (between the slowest possible and fastest possible).
But you're right, DVDs are a great, cheap way to store media and even data. I've have used countless discs, for countless years (good quality media, good quality drives). Store them correctly, and they aren't any less safe than a HDD/Flash media.

I agree you are making valid points, but is the average user capable of dealing with NAS? I think DVDs are good for backing up small amounts of data e.g Word/Excel documents, and I stress that multiple copies of any vital documents should be made, preferably on different brands of DVD. I do not have NAS myself, but have multiple copies of my music and photos on 4 separate hard drives, in addition to the PC I am using. Another trick for critical files is to use Winrar with a good long password and email the file to yourself at an online email account. When the email provider says that RAR files are not allowed, just rename to something else eg backup.rar becomes backup.dog. Ignore any Windows error message. If/When you want to restore the RAR backup just rename the file back to say backup.rar. Winrar is pretty secure and does not cost a fortune, one of the best backup programs.

I really don't get why the N word scares so many people these days!!!oO

They have now gone up in price

NomNom?

Brilliant price for a solid product, these, in a safe|office lock point|down your pants, are a FAR safer bet than any backups, especially if you are prone to buying a shed load of Crucial re-certified SSD drives, to replace your current client company onsite backup routines.. then none actually turn up from the hukd deal thread!! [not that we are hinting crucial!]

Seem to be showing as £13.99 on lists on amazon, then when added to cart, price is £17-19+ ?

Rubbish brand and lol at those who scoff at using dvds good luck on your HDD when it dies in a few years and I'm sure the nsa is backing up all your cloud stored junk





^^^ Sorry.The English language is so old I was replying in some high tech jazz and the blooming web page is unable to accept it.

Sad face.

NAS? I wouldn't know one if it hit me in the face. Why bother. DVD. Put in tray. Drag and drop. Click burn and verify. Take out of tray. Gooooood.

I've had too many DVDs decay (yes, decay) on me to trust them any more. That said I did have to burn recovery media recently when the broken BIOS of a computer failed to boot off USB. (Apparently getting this right is really hard for PC makers.)

Well it is a backup so you'd have your original to backup to a new drive.

If you are serious you'd have a third backup anyway. Or at least OK onto a NAS with redundancy.

Any proper archive on DVD really needs external validation, and if you can parity files stored in the free space on the disc.

considering when I back up to HDD I also have the original copy as well I do not see any problem what so ever - as there is little chance of two drives failing at the same time.

DVD's will decay and you will get errors unless you are storing them in the right kind of environment (and keeping them there)
