I was reading about bit rot
and began wondering about my backup ideas.
If I copied my wallet.dat file 1,000,000 times across the entire partition of my usb drive... or perhaps created ~20 partitions that each contained a copy of the wallet.dat file...
Would I somewhat protect myself against bit rot?
It sounds like it only affects single bits at a time and on a specific area of the drive. So if I made multiple copies on the same drive then surely one copy would work correct?
Obviously I will be replacing my backup media every year or two but the less often I have to the better.
If I could just create 1 million copies of my wallet.dat file and leave it on a USB until the product itself deteriorated that would be amazing.
Somebody told me about OTP (One Time Programmable) solutions as well but they are not easily attainable, or so it seems. Know of any good links?
