I just happened to know a friend who did his graduate work on issues of magnetic computer media, so I referred this question to him.  In his answer below, he refers you to a Web site for some more info. Hope that it helps.


The website of the National Technology Alliance includes a section on Media Stability. It includes several technical reports which address the questions you raise. They've done a nice job presenting the information, and they know more about the details of this topic than I do, so I refer you to them.
