We suggest that when you have the video files on your computer, you make duplicates of the video files s. This will help ensure that they last a really long time as the more copies you have of the file, the lower the chances of file loss. This is a good reason to email video links of your tapes to your friends and family so you can all enjoy them for years to come!
