Storing personal files like music, pictures and videos on DVDs isn’t suitable for long-term storage. DVDs use a dye to hold data. This dye fades after a while and the process is accelerated if the dye is exposed to UV light from the sun. When this happens, your data isn’t recoverable and lost forever. If you are looking for a long-term storage solution, consider online storage.
