We have autodesk DWF drawings that we want to move to an archive(file storage).  Would you leave them as DWFs or convert to a PDF.  The PDF actually ends up being two thirds larger.

We are concerned about fifteen years down the road and software compatibility.

Thanks

Neither Autodesk nor Adobe is likely to disappear in the future. Still, the DWF files may no longer be supported because of upgrades to Autocad. PDF is much more likely to remain stable (and in the future you could probably paste the PDF into a DWF file).

And, of course, cloud storage now makes it possible to save files of any size.
