Backup to CD-RW nightmares
Posted on 2004-03-22
Anyone else having CD-RW backup nightmares? I am trying to use BackupMyPC to write my data. Keep getting these "cannot write the required backup fornat to the media" errors, even with different media. Then , the next time I use the same media, it write it fine, usually after formatting. Then I go back and try to read it and it says the media does not contain a valid backup set. Also, I lost my catalog due to a virus recently. Now, none of the CD's I backed up to are recognized by BackupMyPC, because there is no catalog. I can use these same CD's to drag and drop data with Cd createor 6, no problems.
I am ready to go back to tape and trash the BackupMyPC software. ! Anyone have suggestions?
