Burning a backup, better way?
Ok, so i got my nice new burner, and with my new burner i want to get a lil smarter : )
Well heres the deal, i loaded up Roxio 5 Basic and under Data CD it says "take two - backup your entire computer on one or more cds" , but i can't use it because its the basic version of roxio, ie free.
So heres my problem, i want to backup my HDD on a series of CDs. My music folder alone is over a gig, its like 1.5. My total disk space used is about 8.5 including windows XP. So i figure it too take about 12 cds (they are 700mb). Is there a better way? My main issue is the music folder, how can i get it to fit on one cd, a zip file isn't even close. I have everything else backed up, so if i can squeeze down my mp3's the problem would be solved. I have Roxio 5, Nero 5, RecordNow MAX, and windows built in burn software.
