In reference to making backup of cd's and Dvd's, I am using Ghost to backup my operating system and hard drive.
Ghost creates an image, durning the backup process in a propriety format, and writes to either a CD-R or CD-RW, as well as DVD+R/+RW.
For this question, I am using CD-RW's for the backup, all works well and I have tested and restored the entire system via the restore process using the CD-RW's..
Here is the problem I am having.
After several backups I accumulate many CD-RW's and wish to re-use them.. BUT, Ghost will not allow the previously backup CD-RW's to be written on again.. States that it must be a newly formated or new CD-RW.
There is no function or feature, that I find in Ghost, to format the CD-RW's, the manual states use a CD-RW utility. OK,, I now take that to mean, I could use, Nero and/or INCD to erase the CD-RW to return it back to new status compatibility. Well, neither the nero nor the INCD will erase the CD-RW.
I have written Symantec about this issue and have not had any response from their so-called peeps.. going on for about 4 weeks now, and I send the same request once a week..
I would appreciate very much, assistance or a direction on which I can hopefully resolve this problem of formating the CD-RW ( and DVD-RW's) returning them to so-called factory new.
Thanking you in advance,,
