If your negatives are valuable keep them in a fireproof vault that can withstand 24 hours at 1000 degrees. Put the vault in the basement or below the house foundation.

I know. Just making a point that negatives dont "last forever" per se. As with digital, effort is needed.

There is a simple solution. If your negatives are important to you, get yourself a film scanner and digitize them.


Also here, a lot of effort. Just making a point that it's not like "digital is crap, back in the day everything great".
