If you are down to 8.5 out of 10 gigs, you need to worry about getting your data off that drive while you can. Room is needed to remove the data (reading and writing room). If there is not enough room to perform the needed reads and writes, you then have to start ''throwing stuff overboard''....
However you get your data off the drive, doesn't matter. The important thing is to get it off intact. You can put it back on a hard drive later.
Hi , I need to know something I have been thinking about ..
I got my 10 gig C drive down to the bare minimum 8.5 gig of data using the high compression to make a N. Ghost 9x image and put it in my external usb 2 hardrive and then from there using nero burn the 8.5 data onto a just one 4.7 gig dvd ?
or am I cutting things too close has anyone gotten 8.5 gig down to 4.5 gig of data using high compression ..will the high compression mode bring it down that much to fit on one dvd ?
I know if I use ghost 9x( gear) to burn directly from ghost to dvd ( it makes the image and burns it to dvd) and it will automatically span the data in encrements of probably 4 gig each to fit on two 4.7 dvd's but the reason I would like to avoid that is because its so much much slower that way ( ghost to dvd) then from the external hardrive to the dvdrw drive benq 16x speed ..
