Three questions, please.
Trying to decide on the best packet writing software and have several questions. First, my setup currently. Two machines, W98SE and Xp Pro. I'm a writer and use XyWrite, a 16-bit DOS program running in a DosBox (Window). I save to disk (HD and floppies) every half hour or so. I save to a 3-inch floppy and a ZIP drive (easy to burn these out quick). I want to eliminte the ZIP and save to CD-RW. Just got a Plextor 52/24/52A. Plan to get either silver or gold MAM-A CD-RW disks.
Familiar with some of the packet writing programs. InCD, Direct CD. I have RSJ CD-Writer and although it is solid software, I can't use it because it does not allow you to delete single files from the disk.
Q1: On a CD-RW is it even possible to actually delete a file or are you just deleting the reference to it in the TOC/directory and the file stays on the disk, just as it does in a CD-R. In other words, does rewritable mean you can only OVERWRITE NOT DELETE, or can you actually delete.
Reading up on SAI's Write CD-RW, this seems perhaps what I want. But I've also been reading about other packet writing software: NTI File CD, for example (http://www.ntius.com/default.asp?p=cdmaker/filecd_main
). So back to the question:
Q2: What's the best and why?
Also, please, a comment on the following from a post here: Boydo wrote:

Q3: So the alternative to a UDF TSR is?
