Hi Vincent,

From the point of view of digital long-term preservation, ZIP and TAR are unsuitable file formats because they compress and are susceptible to bit errors, thus violating the principle of „robustness“. In addition to this principle, "open specification", "free implementation", "self-documentation" and "simplicity" also matter.

TIFF as a base fulfills a number of these principles and may be suitable to serve as a starting point for suitable long-term preservation file format.

With best regards

Andreas
