How long Do VHS & Mini DV Tapes Last?
VHS and mini DV tapes aren’t just obsolete; they also have a limited lifespan. After 20 years, you can expect about 20% degradation. This means that 20% of the data stored on the tapes will be lost. The result is a slow deterioration in video quality, which eventually renders the video unwatchable.

This happens primarily because VHS and mini DV tapes are magnetic, and magnetic storage degrades over time. On a magnetic tape, the magnetic particles are held in place by a binder layer. This layer loses its strength over time, and the particles slowly fall away. Magnetic particles can also get moved around by nearby magnetics sources like speakers.
