Re: backup archive format saved to disk
I quite agree. But in the absence of error-correction codes,
uncompressed is batter.
And if your error-correction software ahould happen to be unusable in several
years, your errors will not be easy to corrected.
Even with FEC uncompressed may be better. OTOH, fewer bits to fail
is an advantage.
Did you ever write any code in the 1970's that can't be run any more?
I wrote some machine language programs for the IBM 1401 in 1969.
Does that count as programs that can't be run any more?

You have found the bank of Larn.
I can explain it for you, but I can't understand it for you.
I speak only for myself, and I am unanimous in that!
