Assuming they survive the solar flare incident, there is the historical legacy element as well. historians will be looking through these photos for centuries.

The images that have been hard-printed and published at least. And I hope some prints that I've sold and given away are well-liked enough for people to keep them around a while.

But social media and other online-only images are fleeting.

More so than you can imagine, with a reasonable amount of time all hard drives in private hands will be erased via an event like the 1859 Carrington Event - which was the first time we noticed the effects as a species since its the first time we had primitive electronics to be destroyed/erased. The USA among other nations is currently on a twenty year race to shield critical data from eraser (money, medical and science archives etc)

Most Cloud companies have no such defences as there considered a waste of money.

Imagine all hard drives but the military being erased overnight and the chaos and loss of data that entails.

In some future shielding will probably be standard.

That will be an interesting event to live through.  Us older guys, who know how to do things in an analogue environment will be in high demand.

That's my opinion, and it's worth what you paid for it.

The race is not always to the swift nor the battle to the strong, but that's the way to bet.
