    Thumbs up Fujitsu Scansnap

    l've put these into a large accounting firm and they love them. They are quick and give good resolution (not as good as a photo scanner would), come with the ABBY OCR software. If you're scanning non-standard sized pieces of paper; i.e. cash register receipts, they have sheet covers that allow them to be fed as full size.

    Is the resolution about photo copy quality, or is it better? Also, IIRC about what I've read, doesn't it also come with Adobe Standard as well as the ABBY?

    Only thing stopping me right now is the $400 cost. But it would be nice to have my office and paper storage better organized.

    Is there any other duplex scanners that you would recommend, or should I just bite the bullet and buy the scansnap?

    I had a file folder full of 8-1/2x14 legal size documents. Rather than scan them in into top and bottom files, I took them to the local Kwik-Kopy, which scanned them on their big flatbed for $6.57.

    That took care of the deed registration for the house, title insurance forms, marriage certificate and other miscellaneous legal-size papers.

    CDs and DVDs are not a good method of backing up data, they suffer from what some people refer to as "Disc Rot", where the media will start to get holes in the protective layer. If you have any really old music CDs, you may have noticed it, hold them up to the light you may see some holes forming. I had 20-30 CDs containing old back-ups from around 2000, about 50% of them had signs of CD rot.

    Here's an article on it: USATODAY.com - CDs and DVDs not so immortal after all

    The best storage medium for important documents is hard copy or non-volatile memory, like flash drives.
