How long is the life of a CD-R / -RW?

22 November 2021

According to our accelerated test, it has a life of about 30 years (this is just an estimated life in the accelerated test, not a guaranteed value).
In addition, the life of the disc may be affected by the storage condition and handling of the disc, so store it in a normal indoor environment. Avoid storing in direct sunlight, high temperature, high humidity, or places with drastic temperature changes, and store in a case when not in use to prevent scratches and dirt from adhering to the recording surface of the disc.
