I  just saw a thread about Kodak DCR files. These are the file types most people think will become obsolete soonest.

At work, I have about 15,000 DCR files in my archive that I will be converting to DNG. I have DCR and CRW files and I want them all in the same format. I have 150,000 CRW files that I am going to convert to DNG.

I also just deleted 45,973 TIFF files from my server. It was a scary moment but I feel better about it now - http://digitalphotorepro.blogspot.com/2011/06/archive-deleted.html

119,570 TIFFs deleted - freeing up 5.1 terabytes from our servers.

The TIFFs have been safely tucked away on tape, sitting on a shelf.

I'll bet that was a moment of stress but nevertheless I am convinced that DNG is the right way forward and I now convert all .CR2 files to DNG on import to Lightroom. Once it's all on the drive and backup up to a second drive the files on the flash card are deleted and I've never had a problem.

The good thing about conversion to DNG is that is also verifies the original image for any kind of file corruption so you are able to weed out any potential issues at the same time.
