    Who knows! In the past 25 years we have gone from floppy disks to zip disks to CD's to DVD's to Flash drives, to Solid state drives. Now what's next! The problem with our advancement is that the older storage mediums are abandoned and some of these mediums are even no longer accessible! So when you are thinking of storage to last hundreds of years, it is an unknown at this time!

    There is not any device to carry your data for 100 years and to secure it you have to take backup again and again. Just a freek question..

    Unknown.   For hundreds of years!  Computer storage of any type uses Magnetic Media and we don't know how long it will last.
