Backing up to different media

When was the last time you used your saved disks to retrieve some data? I had this experience of not using the backup disks for a long time only to find that they could not be accessed anymore. The reasons may be because I had changed to a DVD ROM but the earlier disks were saved using CD ROM or the disks are of poor quality and easily scratched.

To prevent the above mishap, I have changed my tactic of saving important data. I use different media to do the job. The same data are put in hard disk, USB drive and CDR's as well as DVD's. In this way, should any of the medium fail me, I still can count on the other media.
