I had heard this, but it really hit home in 2014 when I was reviewing two-year-old pictures of our son's wedding and found that some of them were already becoming unreadable. Right away I made sure to get the remaining ones onto a hard disc.

That may or may not be entirely true. I use "M-Disk", that is "guaranteed" for 1.000 years. Not that I believe they'll last that long (nor do I think I'll be able to verify that either), but those disks are much more sturdy, as the data layer is not dye based but "clay" based. Most (all) modern Blue-Ray writers will write to M-Disk and the disks is found both as DVD and BD writeables. As for myself; I backup to 3 HDD's and to M-Disk BD's.

I would never trust a "noname" optical disk for reliable backups.
