Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Just realize as well regarding environmental factors like heat cold and dust. With any storage component, there is the possibility of corruption even with the latest drives.

When we talk about corruption of files, it could not happen because they are files stored on a hardware device. The possible problem would be the hardware parts of the compact flash disk, remember that they were only made of electronic parts.
