Hello guys..!

I'm back with another instructable...!

In this instructable i'm gonna show you how to organize and store your dvd data..(which can save you a lot of time)

Although we have 2TB external hard drives but we use dvds to store the data permanently and safely...!

I have a lot of data on electronics and computers and i need to store it safely...but the problem is when you need to read the specific file you need to search each and every dvd in your dvd album...!

So I think it is the best way to organize the dvd data and i'm gonna show you how to do it..!

Step 1: Before This Idea What I Did

Before this idea I wrote all the contents in the dvd on the dvd cover page using marker...!

Step 2: Screenshot..!

Take the screenshot of the contents in dvd... by using printscreen (ctrl + alt + prtscr) or snipper tool

Step 3: Printout ...!

Just print out ...!

Step 4: Store..!

Store the dvd along with the printed contents in the dvd album...

so you can easily see the contents in the dvd without inserting dvd....and i think it can save a lot of time...!

<p>For sure this is a lot better than<br>trying to write the contents on the disk itself and this is a fine low tech way<br>to deal with the problem. I haven't ever written an Instructable before and I'm<br>not sure my method of resolving this problem would be very helpful for anyone<br>else but here goes the gist of what I have done.</p><p><br><br><br>I have a stack of 8 CD carousels that hold a total of 700 optical media disks.<br>I have long ago abandoned this media as I find disk drives larger, faster and<br>more easily accessible. So I have more than 20 Terabytes of of 2.5 inch USB<br>External disk drives that I have put a bunch of my data on.</p><p>I am a VBA developer using Microsoft<br>Access to programmatically automate the process of registering the names in a<br>database along with the path those files can be found on, on one of 10 external<br>hard drives.</p><p>It's taken considerably more effort<br>to create my database and for most people this Instructable written by Roshan<br>the innovator, is more than adequate and much easier to implement. The<br>advantage for me though is that it is computer searchable so that I won&rsquo;t have<br>to read 700 pieces of paper in order to find what I am looking for. I realize,<br>of course that my problem isn&rsquo;t the same problem that most people are<br>confronted with. </p><p>Thanks for sharing your Instructable Roshan.</p>
<p>thank you Jesse for your feedback</p>
Be careful, CDs, DVDs and BlueRay disks do not store data forever.<br><br>in fact most you will find (the cheaper ones every chooses) fail within 5 years or so. Even the more expensive ones will fail at some point.<br><br>Make sure you look into the lifetime of the media you store your data so you won't get caught by surprise when it is too late.<br><br>Regardless of the lifetime of your media, you need to make sure you have 2 copies of each. in case one fails you will have the second to make another fresh copy from.
<p>tq for the nice information..!</p>
