M-DISC - The Perfect Long-Term Archive Solution
The OWC Slim optical drive supports the revolutionary M-DISC format, making it the ideal solution for reliable long-term backup and archiving. Compared to other recordable storage media like DVDs and Tape, M-DISC offers superior reliability and protection against data loss that will last a thousand years (or more)!
M-DISCs use a proprietary layer made from inorganic, rock-like material for permanent data storage, protected from data rot and extremes of light, humidity and temperature change. Once written, the M-DISC can be read or played on any quality DVD drive that supports the common DVD+R/RW format.
