Recently, I've been asked to provide recommendations on storing records
maintained by current and departed employees on portable media. When I
asked what type of portable media he'd be using, he said CDs and DVDs.
After presenting him with reasons why not to use regular optical disks, he
asked that I recommend not only storage but also portable media. My
question to group is threefold:
Which portable media do you think are reliable and durable enough to last
up to 15 years? (From my research, gold disks and portable hard drives
seem the best options?)
What ESI formats are best (native format vs. PDF/A?)
If the records are part of a legal hold, shouldn't the transfer process be
a built in part of the legal hold and the associate departure process?
