USB drivers (memory sticks) are the best. For photos, scan them at high resolution (at least 600K). For films, have them digitized (will cost you a lot of money because you have an extensive collection). At the end of each day, copy all that from you computer to your USB. You don't want to have to start all over again if ever you hard disk no longer works. Backup is critical. Once it is all done and your USB is up-to-date (has all the same info as your computer), transfer to a second USB that you will keep at a friend, family member, or even better, at the bank if you're already renting a box in their vault. Eventually, you will have to make known that in the eventuality that you go in the other dimension, how you want your collection to be taken care of after you left. Maybe you want to donate it to a reputable archive or have a reliable researcher like me to own it and take care of it. You have extremely rare material that is too precious to give to someone who does not give a damn about it. He may as well put most of it to garbage.

That was just by 10 cents. Maybe others have other advice.
