Is there a program with which i can backup large amounts of data (eg 100GB) to CD-Rs?

This is just a one time thing, after that, all backups will be incremental.

The Programm should be
 * easy to use,
 * have the option to compress or not compress the data on the CD-Rs,
 * write the CD-Rs on its own,
 * manage the numbering
 * have a complete filessystem on the CD-Rs, so you can just copy one file
 * option to split large files (>700MB) into pieces
 * handle large amount of files

....

Tape solutions are NOT applicable!!

No, there isnt such a program. There are plenty of programs that will do what you wish, but NONE that includes a CD-r Application. www.freshmeat.net has them all.

Impossible. DO you realize what is required to write a CD-r program. That is why ALL programs uses cdrecord as their backend.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Well, most of the programs on freshmeat does that.. Search for "backup" and CD-r youll get dozens of hits.
