Hi, I don't know for sure. Maybe archive.org will still be there. Maybe CDs and pen drives and future media will survive in time capsules.
Or as bookware inside of books that are stored in libraries. Maybe stuff gets archived on micro films, too.
You know, about every nation saves documents somehow under ground just in case.. 😀
(I don't think that's too far fetched, considering that we've got 35 years old 5,25" floppies at home that we can still read.
In addition, some films from the 1920s are preserved and restored by society, too.)
Anyway, we surely will be able to restore and replicate the stuff we love. As long as people care about things, they will be around.
That being said, it shouldn't hurt to backup up some stuff just in case.. The more people keep ju... precious antiques from the 90s, the better. 😀
Edit: Not sure if that answers your questions, but.. Yes, I also sometimes preserve old drivers, the content of ROM chips, schematics and so on if I get the chance.
I also request archive.org from time to time to save interesting pages that I discover when browsing the web. 😀
You know, such oddball sites from the late 90s and early 2000s, that may or may not contain homebrew software (DOS, Win95 and even Linux -eww-) that doesn't exist anywhere else.
Or which contain little poems, wisdom of life and stories written and forgotten by the individual who wrote them once in the days of early web.

(Oh, if someone wonders why i'm just worried about 90's stuff, well that was the golden ages and the peak of humanity) 😁
Hey, I though that was the 70s.. 74 series TTL chips, Zilog 80, CP/M, Space 1999 (series), Silent Running (film), Voyager 1+2, all that philosophy stuff (mind over matter, peace, movements to save nature etc). 😉
Edit: How rude of me! Just noticed that this is your first post!
Welcome to Vogons, my friend! I hope you have a good time here. 😀
