I am now sending out my books with the software burned onto a CD, instead of the 3 1/2" floppy that I had been the media of choice when first published (1996-98).
I have an auto-run file and self installing program on the CD that creates a directory and loads the Crypto files for the book onto the user’s hard drive.
It occurred to me today, after spending some time reviving a DVD that had read problems caused by dirt, scratches, etc. that it might be prudent to put another (duplicate) set of files on the book CDs to serve as backup in case the portion of the CD holding the original files becomes unreadable.
Is there a way to do that? I thought about creating a directory for the duplicate file (called Backup) which would allow files of the same name to be stored on a single CD, but wondered how I could provide access for the user that is not familiar with file management techniques.
I guess this is more of a programming question than a CD burning question. I didn’t know where I should post it so I’ve put it here in the Newbie section.
