I tried searching the forums (no luck) and Google left me with rumors and speculation.
So, I used Windows to make a backup image of my entire system. It told me it would take about 43GB of a 50GB DL disk I have. When I first put the disk inside my computer, it showed up as a 47GB something disk, due to formatting which makes sense.
Anyways, I let the thing run and make the image. Took a few hours, but it finishes without errors.I get back and open up My Computer and this is what I see:
Yah. I was confused, too. The disk is made by TDK and it clearly says 50GB on the outside (it’s a 2x BD-RE DL 50GB disk). The data side is black: is this normal? I will say that I, ahem, bought these from eBay.
Probably just a Windows fluke, right? Any way to stop this/fix this/confirm this?
