Missing Data

Question

Fortunately, subsequent to EMC 9, Roxio doesn't have Packet-Writing in their suites.

 

This has reduced the number of people blaming Roxio for losing their data because Packet-Writing has failed, but there are still people using older Versions who have it happen.

 

In addition, RW media is NOT a good idea for long-term usage, because, like Packet-Writing, it can lose everything without warning.

 

Brendon is finally willing to admit that Packet-Writing can be a problem.

 

He is NOT yet willing to admit RW media can also lose data.

It isn't a case of whether Brendon or Sknis or the other Digital Gurus have read the information. It is a question of whether the OP needs the info to avoid disaster.

Why bring me into this? I have never doubted that packet writing and long term storage of data on an RW disc is BAD. Why don't you pin this topic to the top of the board and then refer to it in the future? That way it won't get lost.

Packet-Writing and RW media isn't the only way data can be lost. Disc or dye rot can happen just as easy on poor 'R' media, problem is how do you know that when you buy it or burn it..

 

It's time to quit beating that old Packet-Writing / RW horse to death!

Lyn obviously has no idea about my assessment of packet-writing or the use of RW discs. She should refrain from making wild statements [but she won't].

 

She once wrote "Anything I don't expect to put on my computer doesn't exist, so I won't write about it" , but that hasn't turned out true, either.

Since you obviously belive Packet-Writing is a good way to make long-term archival discs, which program do you use?

 

Since you obviously belive RW media is a good choice for long-term archival discs, which RW discs do you recomend?
