Backing up Digital Photos Beside Analog?

USB Flash Drive. So long as you are not using them constantly and ensuring
that you keep the format clear, they will last a long time. And they are
dirt cheap right now.

Backing up Digital Photos Beside Analog?

tl;dr: Do you think an SD card written with exFAT and jpegs will be
readable in the year 2114?


So we have been trying to get our mass of digital photos to be more analog
and used. So we are taking the cream of the crop and framing some and
making old fashioned photo albums from the rest.

While the the photos are backed up in various ways, I was thinking more of
say 50-100 years from now. Barring fire and flood it is likely that the
analog photo albums will still be around, but my backups might not be.

So I was thinking, what if in the back of the album I stored a digital copy
of all the year's photos and videos?

Ah, but then comes the question. Best way to future proof?

Floppy Disc? (Hint: No)
CD? Maybe, but digital storage size issues.
DVD? Fixes most of the storage size issues, but they really don't last well
50 years and unreadable.
BluRay? Cannot currently write one.
SD Card? No size issues, but not much data on lifespan (outside of WORM
from SanDisk, but that is not really a good idea for this)

So of those best option is SD card, but that brings up...

What format? exFAT? ext2/3/4? btfs? zfs? xfs?

Do you think an SD card written with exFAT and jpegs will be readable in
the year 2114?
