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.
