Consumer grade Cd-Rs are not forever, so if you want to access what’s on them you should be backing them up on to other media.

hard drives and SSD’s fail too so you should regularly be making backups of those as well.

and before someone starts going on about film and prints those fade too.

Maybe someday we will have truly permanent media but until then: make ups if you want your pictures later.
