Digital Files


Safeguard your digital movies
by copying them onto
archival-quality DVDs

The digital revolution has been with us for only a short time but has dramatically changed how we communicate, entertain, work and live. We take digital photos, listen to digitized music, and capture and watch digital video. We send e-mail instead of letters, own web addresses and allow people into our personal lives through social networking sites. It has even affected the way we store our memories as we create digital backups of documents and photos, as well as digital photos of mementos in our archive.

Over the last few decades, many of us have amassed gigabytes of digital files. And just like our physical mementos, these files need to be properly archived to preserve their integrity.

If you think that archiving your digital files is a daunting task, you're not alone. Institutions like libraries, museums and archives are always searching for the best, most economical ways to archive their digital libraries.

Just like archiving your physical memories, you need to set simple goals, make a plan and follow through. Remember — your digital assets are going to continue to grow, almost exponentially, so establishing a system now is only going to benefit you and your family for generations to come.

To build your family archive, start with digitizing physical assets by scanning and photographing items. Then combine these files with existing digital files to complete your archive.
