Comment Define: restore (Score 1) 498

Are we talking about a file that we have copied to a different media? ex. a copy of a file on a floppy disk Or is the question what is the oldest file that can be restored? Where restored means the file was somehow processed to a different format and/or media. ex. Using the DOS backup and restore commands. Its a reasonable question becuase I have files that can be direct copied from removable media as far back and 1979. But it its pain in the neck to get old programs to unlock the compressed/encrypted data files and get them back to their original state.
