Magnetic tape has a limited life span due to a very serious condition called Sticky Shed Sydrome.  This happens when humidity causes the magnetic tape's binder to deteriorate leaving a gummy residue on the tape heads. When a tape with sticky shed is played back on a reel-to-reel machine, there is a risk to damaging the master tape and priceless sounds are in danger of being lost forever. We highly suggest having all audio tape formats converted sooner, to preserve your family memories or corporate and heritage collections.

Audio collections require specific care and handling to ensure that the recorded information will be preserved. Special storage environments are necessary to ensure that the recorded information is preserved for longer than 10 years. For information that must be preserved indefinitely, periodic transcription from old media to new is necessary, not only because the media are unstable, but also because the recording technology will become obsolete.
