archiving VW files

Recommended Posts

I'd like to get some input from NNA and other VW users on this. I think there are only 3 possible strategies for archiving old files:

1 - Easiest: save them and forget them and try to keep appropriate VW version running to access these files. This requires cooperation from OS and equipment, and is probably a doomed effort in the long run.

2 - Never forget or "deadfile" old files. Continually convert them into newer VW formats as the versions come out. This appears to have risks as well, as the conversion process seems to entail losses, changes in data sometimes.

3 - Save in the most universal and durable format one can find, .pdf, .dwg, ...other?

And of course, it's possible to do combinations of these, even doing all 3!
