I am trying out the latest version of Acronis True Image.  I plan on backing up 66GB.
Is there a way to estimate how many CDs I am going to need?

I don't know what the compression ratio is for Acronis. 10%, 20%, 50% 0%.

I am hoping  that it will be 10%.  I started the backup and I am already up to 5 CD disks.

Please advise.
