I’m working on a way to protect our digitized family memories long-term. Right now, I have them on a flash drive. The main concern with that is the shelf-life of the EEPROM. They’re in a fireproof case along with other important documents. I was thinking of putting them inside a ziplock bag to protect against flood damage (although, flooding isn’t a concern where we live). Then, I started thinking about an airtight container. That would be easier to protect against some of the more severe weather events. Then, I started thinking, “If some of these containers are aluminum, how well could they protect against an EMP blast?” I’m not just thinking about an attack from an outside force. I’m thinking solar storms and such.
