Part 3. Completing Three Simple CD Projects > Completing the Data Backup

Completing the Data Backup

We backed up our Quicken data into a folder called $backup on the C: drive. Click C:, click the folder, and then drag and drop it into the compilation.

Now for the audio tracks saved as WAV and MP3 files: Click My Documents, find the My Music folder, and drag and drop in the audio tracks from those folders.

Whoa! That exceeded the capacity—those files are huge. If you go over your limit, click Ctrl+Z (Undo), select fewer files, and start over.

INTRODUCTION

At this point you can continue adding files until you get close to the most common 650 (or 700) megabyte limit of your disc. If you're using a DVD recorder and media, you can cram up to 4.7 gigabytes onto your disc.


TIP

Notice that if I double-click the folder in the compilation, the MP3 files are included within it.


HINT

CD Creator doesn't have Undo; you must delete the folders manually.


Now, insert a blank CD into your burner and click Write CD.

Check Finalize CD if you are finished adding files to this disk.

Finally, click Write.

TIP

In the Write CD dialog box, choose the best speed for your burner and your blank media. If you have disc space and you might want to add more tracks later, uncheck Close Disc.

You can have Nero Cover Designer add the info from your data.


HINT

There are disc image programs (such as Norton Ghost) that can make an image file of your whole hard drive and restore it from DOS. If you use a program like that, you can explore the bootable CD option.


TIP

Backing up part or all of a Program File Folder can be useful—some programs store your settings or personal files by default in a subfolder (although most now use My Documents).
