Seeking ideas for organizing, storing and preserving digital files and photos
I am of a generation that witnessed the rise of computers and digital information. I have incorporated digital media into my life and started thinning my book collection, etc. (I still have a large collection of books, CDs and DVDs.)
Hard copy books and photos are still easier to organize and will preserve the information that they contain. Digital documents can presumably be purchased or downloaded again; family photos that are digital can be lost forever if the storage device gets damaged.
I have burned lots of files to DVDs but keeping track of a digital world that changes daily can be near impossible.
Have any of you found a method to preserve digital information that is traceable, organized and easy to maintain?
