I was in a local photo shop yesterday and the owner was really hammering me about backing up my photos. I do quarterly backus to CD or DVD and I periodically copy my entire iPhoto library to an external drive. He recommended Delkin Devices Archival Gold eFilm CD-Rs. Said they are 24k gold coated and will last 300yrs. He also recommened that I print my pics from a photo lab. All of this is good advice but I wasn't sure if he was just trying to sell me stuff. The CD-Rs are over $1 each, so they aren't cheap. Does anyone have any opinions (or facts) on if we should be spending a bit more on high quality CD-Rs? Or are these things just the same as standard CD-Rs I buy at Best Buy or CompUSA? I'm willing to spend the extra if it will help preserve my photos longer. Here is a link with info on the discs: http://www.archivalgold.com/ Thanks.
