Kevs you are Correct.
I said earlier in the post 95% of my film images have been scanned and I do have off site storage. Still I feel that only I know or care about my digital files. When I go nobody will search my old computer for images. However nobody will toss my eye viewable images (prints, negatives and slides) without thinking twice.
That is not to say they will not be tossed in the trash; only that they will think twice before doing so.
