Can I store my backup CDs in the stack container that blank CDs come in, or is it important to store them in individual boxes or sleeves? Not sure if I'm posting this in the correct forum.

Whichever you prefer. I store mine in a cd case with the plastic sleeves. The case has a permanent home on my computer desk. Easy access if I need them. No searching trying to find what I need.
Tip of the day-make 2 copies of all your program software and important back up disks. If one gets scratched or broken, toss it and use the other one. Then make a copy of the good one.

Storing discs in the stack container does put you at risk for more damage/wear/tear etc.

I also store all mine in plastic sleeves in a wood box. Have only damaged a couple over many years of use.
(All damage was my fault in mishandling.)
The only easy day was yesterday.

I prefer the slim jewel cases, the surface of the disk in completely protected. Newegg has the 50 pack for $15.00, and 100 pack for $20.00.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Thanks everyone, I'll store them in cases.
