I am in the process of attempting to back up a DVD. I already have the “Video_TS” file for the DVD I am trying to backup saved to my hard drive.
I am attempting to burn it to a blank dvd using “DVD Shrink”, V 3.2 which had been recommended to me by several sources. I downloaded it from a trusted source, but upon attempting to install it on my system however (Vista Home Premium), I got the following message from “Avast!”, my anti-virus program:
"You are opening an application that may be potentially unsafe. We strongly recommend opening this application in the virtual environment of the “Avast! sandbox. Any data that you save while in the sandbox will be lost when the sandbox is closed.”
First of all, in all my years of installing software on my system with “Avast!”, this is the first time I have received this message. I’m not quite sure what to make of it since “DVD Shrink” seems to have a good reputation.
Should I go ahead and continue to the installation anyway or is there another product that would be a better choice for me for my purpose? For that matter, why would I need to use a product that would “shrink” the backup copy to fit on a single DVD when the original file had already been on a single DVD?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
