    Shelf Life

    What is the meaning of this phrase:

    "The reason being all hard copy and storage media have a shelf life"

    in the following context:

    The reason being all hard copy and storage media have a shelf life, are bound to deteriorate over a period of time and the space required to store these media is huge.

    Thanks.

    Re: Shelf Life

    I think you might have answered your own question there

    "shelf life" is how long an item can sit unused and still be expected to work.

    Cream has a shelf life of a week or two.
    Bread a few days.
    Camera film months to years.
    Medicine days to years.
    Etc Etc...

    "hard copy" media could be printer toner/ink cartriges or even thermal paper.
    "storage" media could be magnetic tape, disks, flash RAM cards.
