I don't use a backup program. I make CDs or DVDs with the files, folders, photos, music, downloads and anything else I've created. I use Roxio but I'm sure any good CD/DVD burning program will do.
I was just wondering, if I have some data, like mpeg files, that I want to back up to data dvd, do I necessarily have to use a special backup software? I use Nero Backitup, but don't like the fact that the files are proprietary and you have to restore them with the same program. Is there some reason I can't just write them straight to the dvd using another program, (such as Sonic RecordNow), especially if the program has a data verification after burn option?
