This story talks about how NASA is moving its data from
tapes as old as seven tracks to newer media, but then
they get done, they have to start moving it again to new media, and how they are falling behind, and may have to lose TB's worth of data.. Really interesting.."
It says it will take them 4 years to move all the data to
tapes that have a 6 year life expectancy. Hmmm.
