Up until today I haven't bothered with cd images. I have just bought me another computer with a dvd burner and have got a lot of disks to backup on dvd's. I have just downloaded and started to use isobuster 1.7 which is a great program but for a beginner like me I suppose it was a bit hard at first to understand.
Goudo, now I have learned the program a bit more, I have started to extract and create a .tao file of only the data on the disk and then rename the file to a .iso file which should be compatible with most programs in the future, by doing it this way the file is only slightly larger than the total size of all of the original data on the disk, then by sending the .iso file to a compressed folder seems to compress it more.
Please, if you have any more comments Suggestions and other free programs will be useful.
