For preservation and archival, we will need a device that can hold around 40GB of data. The device is Write Once Read Many (WORM) – which makes the data permanent and cannot be erase or modified. The device is durable and is not susceptible to mechanical or system failure.

Blu-ray technology meets this criteria. The process will copy the photos and videos to a blu-ray disc. These will preserve our digital memories for a long time.

Why blu-ray?

Blu-ray disc is ideal as it has an expected archival life span of 50 years.

Blu-ray are Write Once Read Many (WORM) disc. Data once written cannot be erase or modified or formatted. User can read the data many times. Computer viruses cannot infect the data inside a blu-ray disc.

Unlike Hard disk drive blu-ray disc has no moving parts. The data are safe from ‘accidents’, such as damages from dropping a device.
