Paper records are more reliable than digital records

After using own computers for few decades, it is increasingly clear that paper records are far more reliable. Most computers and laptops will crash after a few years and it is difficult to retrieve the data from the hard disk of a computer which has stopped working. Though a backup may be taken, it is difficult to access the data in digital form after a few years as the media keeps changing , it may get corrupted or hacked.
For example earlier floppy drives were used for taking backup, now it is very difficult to read the floppy drives as most laptops, computers do not have any provision for reading a floppy drive
On the other hand, paper records which are three to four decades old like college notebooks are easily accessible and readable without any effort
