The life of digital storage media is limited so you need to manage digital preservation. It involves three factors: media durability, media usage, storage and handling and media obsolescence. Durability addresses the fact that the reliability of media items varies. Usage, storing and handling refers to the impact of people on the longevity and quality of storage media. Obsolescence focuses on the constant changes in computer technology that can make older forms of storage media unrecognizable and unreadable. You need to organize the important digital content by making copies, using different types of media, storing them in various secure locations, labeling them and create archival copies regularly.
