Buy a memory stick and you can copy as many times as you like. This one (4Gb) for £9.66 is the one I here

Discs are so 20th century ;-)

A memory stick is safer than a CDRW or DVDRW which is what the disks are called. In my opinion of course. I no longer use RW (rewriteable) disks as I found a short time later they were corrupt sometimes and just could not be read.

I think both GANDALF <|:-)> and Totally-braindead have made a very good point here.

Regarding Memory Sticks, I did read somewhere you should never Defrag one ?

Hi Ronald

Just a pointer and may depend on what version of Sage is being used.

I recently had a computer sent to me that was having problems with Sage backups.

Cutting a long story short-the backup could not be viewed/explored,only restored within sage.

So my point is; if you decide to create the backup on cd or flashdrive,and depending on what version you are using....its only able to restore not viewable.
