i have a CDR which im trying to save a backup on, the problem i have is that the disc is only 700mb but the WINNT folder is nearly 900, and program files into the1000's mb is there a disc bigger than 700mb? if not which files should i save and which should i not bother saving? or do i need all the files in both folders to create a working backup? M
unfortunately im a poor student and cannot aford things as frivilous,thanx any way. ive heard about places on the net where you can save your documents would one be able to use some thing that for the task?
Yes there are CDRs slightly bigger than 700Mb & if you use the 'overburn' feature in Nero - click here - but it isn't likely to make much of a difference to your needs. Your best bet is to use image backup sw as the others have suggested or split the BU over more than one CDR - WINNT1 on one disk & WINNT2 on another, & so on. Another alternative is to buy a DVD-writer - one DVDr can store atleast 4.7Gb.
Note: Using the image backup method (even with compression) is not guaranteed to save to just the 1 CDR, but they can be configured to automatically split the image file into several parts to be saved over more than 1 CDR if needed.
