Saving my recordings on SDHC
« on: December 13, 2019, 09:39:01 PM »
SDHC is sooo cheap now that i am keeping my recordings on the original SDHC card. you can get 32g cards for $7. with 32g you can put many shows on one card. i used to back up (and still do) on many non solid state internal sata drives, but i now think the sdhc card might be more reliable. any thoughts?

I only use my cards once.  Not necessarily for backup purposes as I store in the cloud as well as on my NAS array.  I use 16GB cards and figure if they ever stop making cards that work in my recorders I can reuse.  I have at least 100 by now so lifetime supply.

certainly not the cheapest option

$120 of 32GB cards is 544GB

you can buy an 8TB external for that same $120

To my knowledge, SDHC has not proven itself to be classified as an archival media. If you Google SD cards as long term storage you will see many opinions but only little factual evidence.
One thing is for certain, the least expensive products rarely holds the best archival properties. Paying for the "best" is not a guarantee of longevity either, unfortunately. (I paid good money for what was supposed to be quality MiniDisc media, only to find 10% unreadable 10 years later).
I am afraid that I can't think of anything replacing a healthy backup strategy.
Olympus LS-10 Roland R-07 SONY PCM-A10 -> FEL Communications Clippy EM172 or Roland CS-10EM
iPhone 8 -> Shure MV88 or Sennheiser AMBEO Smart Headset

The only advantage I could see to keeping the original recordings on SDHC cards would be that they would take very little space in a safe deposit box.
Large: AKG c414xls.
Smol: Beyerdynamic MC930, Line Audio CM3 and OM1.
Sneaky Smol: Church CA11+14, Audiotechnica AT853.

I only use my cards once.  Not necessarily for backup purposes as I store in the cloud as well as on my NAS array.  I use 16GB cards and figure if they ever stop making cards that work in my recorders I can reuse.  I have at least 100 by now so lifetime supply.

wait what? You only use your SD cards once? Why?...

if you think thats crazy, we used to use upwards of $10 per show on media back in the day

$10 buys you 10 shows worth of SDHC

Cards are cheap.  2 reasons.  First I believe a lower chance of card errors on a new and fully formatted card and second, at some point they will stop making cards compatible with the recorders.  At that point I have a large supply of single use cards.  Considering back in the day I would pay $24 for 2 DATS to record a show.  A $16GB card costs $6.

I've been using the same 2 SDHC cards for 8 years now and have never had an issue.  500+ shows.  Seems like a giant waste of money when it's not needed. Plus your recording gear is likely to fail before those cards become redundant
