Scientists losing data at a rapid rate

Nature- Decline can mean 80% of data are unavailable after 20 years.
In their parents' attic, in boxes in the garage, or stored on now-defunct floppy disks — these are just some of the inaccessible places in which scientists have admitted to keeping their old research data. Such practices mean that data are being lost to science at a rapid rate, a study has now found.

The story is too old to be commented.
