My father recently bought a new computer after the last one suffered a painful death. I had most of the HD data retrieved from a retrieval company and now have his computer up and running at great speed. It cost 500$ but it was worth it for him as there were too many very important things on it that had never been backed up.
What I'd like to know is if there exists software(free of course, cause I'm cheap) that could automate the backup to DVD process. Currently, I have him saving all his files in the My Documents folder so that only one folder needs to be backed up to DVD. I'd like to find software that I could automate and simplly tell it to burn the contents of whichever folder I select in one click!
Currently, I've been using NERO and dragging and dropping the folder and then burning the DVD. But there are too many steps there to teach my computer illiterate father. I need something simple that has a button or function that can be done with one click.
