I have been trying to find backup software that will backup some files to cd-rw. My wife has tried a bunch of them and after 3 or 4 backups runs into trouble.
Here is what she wants to do…
We have a Liteon 5224X drive with XP-SP1.
She creates a backup set called Quicken, with about 5MB of data in it.
Then she has another set called Data with all of her Excel files selected…maybe 40MB.
As you can see both sets should be able to fit many times on 1 CD-RW.
She runs them both to the same CD-RW (DatalifePlus 24X cd-RW’s), they verify and all is OK. This happens a few more times (maybe 2 times a week) and all is OK…then she gets a failure. Genie does not verify, Stomp just Hangs…I wanted to try Retrospect but it does not look like it will allow you to make a complete backup of the datasets each time, on the same cd.
We used Backupmypc for a while, but it just hangs after a few runs, and I have to use a program like SuperBlank to recover the cd-rw again.
There must be something she can use…any suggestions?
She likes the idea of doing a complete dataset (JOB) backup each time on the CD-RW as she can go back to any date.
