Temp and humidity for storage optical media?

Postby gamemaniaco1987 on Thu Apr 29, 2021 10:57 am

For long-term storage of optical DVD / MDisc discs and electronic devices is it better to store at a humidity of 65-70% at a temperature of 31-32ºC or at a lower humidity of 55-60% and at a high temperature of 32-33ºC? my dehumidifier device cannot keep temperature and humidity low at the same time

If we're only talking a degree difference in temperature, I'd go with the lower humidity.

I would say temperature but, in both of your cases, the temp is pretty high. Is a degree going to make a big difference?
