So, based on the above decision, if you were archiving CD-ROM images,
you would store them as uncompressed .iso files?
"ISO disc images are uncompressed and do not use a particular
container format; they are a sector-by-sector copy of the data
on an optical disc, stored inside a binary file."
Therefore the best way to archive CD-ROM images is to use straight
ISO since partial corruption of the file wouldn't corrupt the whole
Am I following your reasoning correctly?
