By lisac ·
Are there any programs out there that will allow users to do full and incremental backups to a cd-rw?

TIA

Backup to CD-RW

by maxwell edison In reply to Backup to CD-RW

There is a software called, “Backup To CD-RW”, made by Willow Creek Software. They make the following claims:

“Will let you decide which files and folders you want to save, and save that information so you don't have to re-enter it each time you make a backup.”

“There are also several options to backup only files which match the saved backup criteria, and have been recently modified.”

“These options work well with another option to save eachbackup in a separate folder on the backup disk automatically named for the date and time, so you can make small backups of your recently modified files on a regular basis, and save them all to the same backup disc without overwriting the older backups.”

“The major new features in version 3.0 are greatly expanded capabilities for backing up recently modified files, and the ability to control all backup options using command line options so backups can be made unattended.”
“Command line options to create a backup without requiring any interaction with the user.”

“Handy for running unattended backups.”
“To use a CD-RW or CD-R, you must have software such as Adaptec Direct CD which allows files to be written to the drive letter for your CD-RW or CD-R drive. All modern CD-RW and CD-R drives are automatically installed with such software.”

This software costs only $19.95. You can see the rest of their information at their Web Site.

What OS are you on? Microsoft backup (provided w/ windows) should do the trick, provided you have Adaptec DirectCD or equivalent s/w installed(should come w/ your cd-rw). This allows you to copy to and from a CD-RW through explorer and also to setup a b/u schedule by choosing the cd-rw drive letter as the 'backup to' location.

Like answer 2, I just use Microsoft Backup. You need to be running Adaptec/Roxio Direct CD or Nero InCD, and then Backup just treats the CD-RW like another harddrive.
