Hi,


I want to do some backup of a large amount of data
(My music library and about 40 GB of footage), and I wanted to know if anyone knows about a program that will let you burn data across multiple discs like iTunes lets you do.

I don't want to use iTunes for my music because I don't like how easy it is to screw it up, and the fact that using iTunes while burning is risky and all that.

So I was wondering if there was any way to do this in Toast or using burnable folders?

Thanks

You know, if you're backing up 40gb on CDs, it's going to take like 50+ discs, right? Perhaps I'm overstepping here, but you need a DVD burner, if not another HD (which is really the cheapest and easiest way-- schedule backups, don't worry about it ever again).

I'm sorry I meant DVDs

still I really want to be able to do this, it seems such a pain to make a bunch of saved files in Toast for each disc.

Are you a .Mac member? The .Mac "Backup" program allows you to span discs for a backup, if you so choose. I think it might even be available to non-.Maccers, although obviously the option to backup to the internet'll be a no-no.

PM me if you're interested and I'll hook you up with a copy (it's only 2.6MB, so it's probably safe to email unless your ISP really sucks). :p



Look at the bottom bit - that's how easy the disc spanning option is. Just chuck stuff into that window and you're away! :D
