Exactly, Matt! Banks back up and transfer their data periodically, and they will surely have the data on 30-year mortgages when payoff time comes, and beyond.

"I buy vinyl records because I will be able to play them in 30 years, while my digital files will probably be lost in the next 10 years."
Why will your digital files be lost in the next 10 years? Personal digital preservation requires a proactive approach, but it's not very difficult or expensive. Replenishing and backing up data does require some thought and at least intermittent attention, but if your collection is worth it to you, it's a small price to pay.
