Chapter 6. Using Backup > Backing Up to CD or DVD

6.7. Backing Up to CD or DVD

With your iDisk, backups are limited by the amount of space your .Mac membership provides, and how much other data you have stored on your iDisk, such as your .Mac HomePage. However, when backing up to disc media (CD or DVD), you have a lot more freedom, mainly because your backups can span multiple discs, making the size of your backup virtually limitless.

One of the first things you'll notice when you select "Back up to CD" (or DVD) from the pull-down menu is that Backup's interface changes slightly. As Figure 6-20 shows, there are more backup items to select from in the main window, and the iDisk storage meter has disappeared. Instead, when you select an item in the backup list, a message appears above the row of buttons at the lower left of Backup's window, telling you how many discs are required for the backup.
