Some experts opine that long-term storage discs should not be encrypted because 30 years from now, there is a very high probability that the password will be lost. I think this is a very valid point. However, I think leaving unencrypted long-term data in a safe is also dangerous. Also, the safe would have to be pretty big if you have a lot of data to store. Someone can silently come into my business’s archive area and secretly steal data, no?
What do experts suggest is a good balance or alternative?
