When all tumblers have clicked I may have a dozen or more digital back ups at 3 sites. Once digital is gone your fudged. I can never have enough back ups. And I use SD cards like film. I never erase them. Have been saved many times by this alone when I screw up and delete a file. As long as you have a master print, you can recover 90% to 95% of an image.

But archival or not...I just love the look of film...
