The above chart shows the supposed lifespan of microfilm and microfiche in comparison with other modern storage solutions. We mentioned in our recent post about microfiche how one of the few advantages of microfiche today is its expected lifespan.

This doesn't change the fact that microfiche and microfilm has become an obsolete format, on the contrary, people and businesses are flocking to have them converted into digital formats, but this does show the one remaining redeeming feature of a bygone storage format.
