Backup using Nero

  flobby 10:51 06 Dec 2005

Hi All,
I am trying to backup "My Documents" using Nero 7 Premium. Everything is fine I have 4.38GB in the files/folders. It copies and compresses OK and burns to disc EXCEPT when it comes to verify the disc drawer opens then closes and doe's not verify. the process stops at 66%.Another dialogue box appears asking for source disc (which I assume is the disc being burnt)and gives 2 locations my CD drive and my DVD drive I have burnt to DVD so choose this drive BUT the dialogue box just keeps on reappearing. Any Help would be gratefully received Cheers. Flobby

I don't use the nero backup facility, so can't help you with its workings.

But, 'source disk/drive' refers to the location of the files/cd/drive/etc. that you are copying from.

'Destination' disk/drive refers to the cd/drive/folder/etc you are copying to.

Hope this helps.

I have just backed up my docs to dvd with nero, 3.97gb's worth.

I just used nero burning and dragged all docs from the preview window across to the burning window, clicked burn, waited 5.5mins checked dvd was readable and consigned said dvd safely to bottem drawer.

nothing easier.

I have used the browse option and chose My Documents, BUT it still comes back to the same dialogue box and the 2 options are CD writer and DVD writer..I have still left the window open waiting for an answer.

I have done a normal copy of things in my documents but this is supposed to be the answer to proper backups, when you are reinstalling, after a crash or reformatting
Cheers, Flobby

flobby, sorry not got back to you sooner, just logged on.

I'm afraid I can't help, as I already stated, I don't use this facility in NeroBR.

At least this will bump you up the page, where someone may be of more help.
