    Physical Data overwriting enables changes and deletion

    Folio Disc


    Impervious to EMP


    Unaffected by Radiation and Saltwater


    Resilient to Heat, Cold, and Humidity


    HDD & TAPE


    EMP Causes Total Data Loss


    Destroyed by Radiation and Water


    Climate-Control Required


    Upper Layers: Device, Lower Layers: Climate Control

    Low Power Consumption

    Folio Discs require no power when data isn't being accessed and have minimal climate control requirements.
