Shibathedog Posted July 11, 2007 Share Posted July 11, 2007 well if you are using an external HDD for backup i think the assumption is you back everything up and put it away somewhere and don't touch it unless you need too, this way that doesn't happen. optical discs degrade too though, they wont last forever, sunlight, slight bending, scratches, crappy chemicals in the disc, there are TONS of factors that screw up optical discs the only option left....TRAVAN TAPE DRIVES!!!....if they weren't so freaking slow i might actually use one for something Oh and gamecop, I still see them in stores, but you really should start shopping online, I refuse to buy anything computer related in a store, especially at a place like best buy because its always a ripoff. With newegg all my parts are guaranteed for a year (plus whatever the manufacturer gives you, like Crucial's lifetime warranty) Its cheap (sometimes a few bucks cheaper somewhere else but the guarantee makes it worth it for me) and no store will ever match the selection, im very picky about what i buy. stores are dead, the future is in the internets!
