Verbatim M-Disc optical media is the standard for digital archival storage. Unlike traditional optical media, which utilize dyes that can break down over time, data stored on an M-Disc is engraved on a patented inorganic write layer - it will not fade or deteriorate.
This unique engraving process renders these archival grade discs practically impervious to environmental exposure, including light, temperature and humidity.
ISO/IEC 16963 standard longevity tests have proven the durability of M-Disc technology, and it withstood rigorous testing by the US Department of Defense.
Based on ISO/IEC 16963 testing, M-Disc media has a projected lifetime of several hundred years.
