Useful Tips on How to Preserve Your Files and Data

I'm on Fossil Walk in Badlands Park. It's a pretty cool name, and this place is famous for its fossils, particularly mammals, which we've found lots of ancient pigs, rhinos, horses, rabbits, rodents, and plenty of others. I find it amazing that this piece of history can be preserved like this for millions of years.

And what about a million years from now? How much of our current culture be left? Some people think that the digital age means everything can be kept forever, but that's not exactly true. Did you know that digital data decay as well? When you copy your photo, particularly to social media sites, you lose a bit of the data, which is why they get more blurry as they bounce around the Internet.

Do you need help with regular data backup and management? Fill out the form below to get a free consultation with a dork. 

Even if you store something on a USB stick that you kept locked in a vacuum for millennia, it can still lose data. This can be due to electromagnetism or because the metal-like electrons so the hardware is slowly changed. This type of digital decay takes a very long time, but constantly copying images and videos improperly can lower their quality. So, when dealing with digital assets, make sure you copy from an original, have a backup, and regularly crosscheck the images with a CRC/MD5 hash or similar. This way, images always remain as sharp as this video. 

Hey, what's going on? Oh no. I'm not the original Josh. I'm a clone.
