I am not sure if this is the right forum for this question, but i am a newbie and i am allowed to be stupid by law, so here it is. Is it better to store tons of data such as mp3's and mpegs etc. on discs or back up harddrives. I got hundreds of data discs that i have to use on occasion and i find that some discs dont read anymore or appear to be scratched or some redundancy error. I take care of all my discs but i am losing files b-cuz of these disc errors. I know it is cheaper to backup your files on disc, but is it better in the long run due to scratches and errors, time etc. ? I have lost some important files that I thought was safely on a disc and i need some advice. Thanx in advance.
