I'm worried that some of my picture and video files from 10 years ago could end up going corrupt. If I was to use photo-editing software like Photoshop for my picture files, and video-editing software for video files, and made a new copy of them, saved in a different format i.e jpeg to png, and something similar for video files. Would this be the answer to preventing data loss? Even if the originals die out in the future? Or is this not such a good idea?
I just have some very important family photos that I can't afford to lose. If anyone has any suggestions, about what would be the best way to keep my data safe, even if it involves money, please let me know.
