I backup folders such as documents and downloads, to a dvd. I use compression. Now, when I restore those backups to my pc I see that I have extra files that are compressed versions of the originals.
For instance, I backup a file of File type JPG Image File, Name
Photo_dcp. Now, when I restore that file to my pc I end up with File type JPG Image File, Name Photo_dcp and the duplicate is File type Nero Backitup Compressed File,
File Name Photo_dcp.
I just occured to me that maybe this is what happened...
I backed up the file with Nero Backitup which compressed it to DVD. When I restored it, I did NOT use Nero Restore, but instead opened up my Windows Explorer and draggged the compressed folders back to my hard drive.
So, I think my problem is my inexperience. Sound like thats what happened?
