Hello, advise please,
I wanted to back up some program installation disks which are on three 4.7 GB DVD.
Two of the disks each have aprox: 8GB of files on them & one has 4GB on it. (ie total 20GB over 3 disks)
They are .RAR files, is there anyway I can do this to make my blank 4.7GB copy/mirror them as they are.
Sorry if stupid question, dont know about RAR & compression.

Thanks for looking.

Have a read of this. click here

Your program disks are probably DVD9's and you have DVD5's.

You will not be able to directly copy the data onto three 4.7GB disks
