I have done something very stupid after burning several backups with Clone DVD which I have on Trial.
Ever since I did this I am having a mega problem doing a defrag with my Perfect Disk purchased defrag program which has operated fine until now.
I did not check off the box in Clone Dvd that said “erase after write” as I was afraid if I did that I would not be able to do a second back-up.
Now when I do a Defrag I am getting files the size of 1000.2 MB fragmented that are supposed to be in my Norton Recycle Bin as I get this location after the defrag:
c:\RECYCLER\NPROTECT\00042068.VOB and that is just one number of a file then another example of a related fragmented file is c:INNCONW1\VTS_0I_I.VOB and I have done so many backups trying out this program that after every defrag which takes me 4 hours when it used to take 50 minutes and then I have to do a “search” in order to get rid of the file, and then when I find the file it shows 1,048,514 kb. My next step is to send it to the Recycle bin…I am referring to the 1st file listed above, then when I try to do a search on the second file as an example ( and named above) it indicates that it is not available, so I am unable to get rid of it.
I was stupid in not checking off the “Erase after Write” box and now I am going through all of this defragging at at a very slow pace and can’t find out where these “VOB” files are so that I can get rid of them all permanently.They are not in my "Recycler as is indicated by the Perfect Disk defrag as I have to search for them and then delete them to the Recycle Bin manually.
I hope someone can give me a suggestion on how to look for these other “VOB” files of dvd’s that I have burned so that I can get rid of them permanently and get on with a faster defrag which was not a problem before I committed this silly error.
In closing, can I check the “erase after write box” and still have an option to write a second back-up, 3rd or 4th???
I hope that I have explained my dilemma well enough.
