Well this is novel.

Burning a DVD 📀

Can't remember the last time we did that.
Certainly there's not many on the spindle left, but can't see us needing to buy more at the current rate of usage :blobcat_googly:

I still use them, and Blu-rays, for archive backups. I don't burn discs as much as I use to, but, still have the need.

We used to backup on DVD, but switched to hot swap removable discs rsynced across devices as it's cheap enough to just plug in a new drive every couple of years in ever increasing sizes.

We still have the DVDS and for that matter tapes in a drawer, with older backups. 🤷‍♀️

Me too. I have a NAS with a 2Tb RAID, and 2TB USB3 drives on the 2 most important PCs, which I take with me if we are ever away.
You can never have too many backups.

@coth "This", I once thought to myself, "will be the end of my spindles of CD-Rs, with so much more storage per disc!"

Aha. ^_^;
