Any idea what these are?

Taken from the help section of Paragon Drive Backup "removable media such as ZIP, JAZ & LS120" I suspect this will mean I can't put my backup on CD-R.

According to click here you can Place backup image file directly on CD/DVD disks

The only current drive on that list is ZIP which comes in 100MB and 250MB flavours. They are not cheap and you will need quite a few to contain a full backup of your system.

Probably the cheapest backup system now is to install a separate hard drive and put all your backups and security information on there. In a removable caddy is even better.

Update.

Iomega now have a 750 MB Zip drive. The disks work out at around £50 for a box of three.

I bought one !!!!!

Remember you have to buy a 750MB Zip drive as well.

For a lot less than £50 you can buy a 40GB hard drive.

Buying DriveImage or Norton Ghost would be cheaper surely, do they both work with 98SE and CD-R's?

spikeychris, Two problems;1.The version I've got is not 6.0, I suspect (it's just called Paragon Drive Backup 2000)2.CD's only supported by Windows 2000 and XP and I've got 98SE. Plus it's German and the translation to English is really hard to understand.

Pops,

I totally agree with you, but nevertheless I got technomad for a while and bought the drive and three disks. Hmmmmmm. Possibly a very senior moment whilst in the centre aisle of P* W***d.
