Re: Eliminating typing/paper files Hannah King 28 Sep 1993 17:04 UTC

The reason I keep at least one print backup of every important file is that
I feel I can't rely completely on the electronic medium.  Some of my
disks, for example, can no longer be read.  Everything on them is lost.
Daily Bernoulli backups sometimes fail and the days input is wiped out.
Disasters, either manmade or natural, may destroy data on magnetic tape,
floppy disk, or hard drive leaving print wet but salvageable.
