I still buy spindle packs of 100DVD+R’s whenever they are on sale for $25 or less but I don’t use them for backups any more.
It takes several times as long to burn a disc as it does to swap out a hard drive.
Let alone copy the data back off the disc onto a hard drive
I have backup installations for all the computers I’m responsible for on spare HDDs.[/QUOTE]
It would be crazy to use optical disks for hard drive backups. Have an external drive for that.
Still ISO’s for now is not a replacement from backing up your movies on a DVD or Blu-Ray. If you don’t have a HDMI connection, coax or optical to some remote audio input source or "B"speaker source you are SOL.
