Is there a way to span a backup across disks?  i don't see the option in the wizard or the advanced.  Also, I'm not getting the option to run the Outlook backup--I checked to see if it might be a different program but can't find it.  Thanks.

    Almost no programs get this spanning across multiple disks right.  But ROXIO 6.0 DOES indeed get it right.  If you use that program to span your backup across multiple CDS, it will recover the backup flawless, it is tested to work fine.
