SanDisk Memory Vault Promises 100 Years of Data Storage


One of the big worries when it comes to digital photography is that of permanence.  If your online host goes down or your hard drive crashes, you could lose hundreds or thousands of photographs.

SanDisk's latest release is a device called the memory vault.  It's an external hard drive that's capable of storing your data, completely uncorrupted, for 100 years.  That means that - barring any sort of technological breakthrough that lets us augment ourselves and live forever - your photos will live on longer than you do.

You can pick up a SanDisk Memory Vault directly from the company for a price of $50 for eight gigs and $80 for 16.
