hello all,

is "the conservation of the archived files" a good translation for "la conservation de vos fichiers archivés"? The context is a storage and archiving server that stores files online. I was wondering if the word "conservation" could also be used in English in a computing context.

    I'd say that "conservation" reminds me more of physical objects, e.g. the conservation of centuries-old books in a library. Can you give a bit more context about exactly what is meant by this, so we can maybe suggest a better alternative?

    thank you jmt_dh1,

    the context is the storage/ archiving of medical images on an informatic system. Those files are critical for the doctors and should be, therefore, stored in a secure and almost permanent way.
    This part of sentence that I try to translate is part of a marketing brochure.
