Backup To DVD/CD 5.1.210 description

Backup To CD-RW - Make backups to CD-RW, CD-R, hard disk... Backup To CD-RW, and its sibling Backup Made Simple, are two closely related programs developed by Willow Creek Software, each designed to meet somewhat different backup needs. Because of their similarity, the same help file is used as documentation for both.
Backup To CD-RW is designed to work best with CD-RW, CD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, DVD-R or DVD+R or other high capacity media, or if you want files to be saved on the backup as exact copies of the originals so they can be accessed directly on the backup media without restoring them first.
Backup To DVD/CD is a software that allows you recover your data to CD or DVD.
Its essential feature is that by default files are stored on the backup media as exact copies of the originals, without compression or a proprietary format. This requires large enough capacity media to fit the largest file you want to back up, because it can’t split big files across multiple discs.
Backup Made Simple is designed to work well with both low and high capacity media, if you require file compression on most backups, and if you are satisfied with having to restore files from the backup media back to your hard disk before you can access them. Its essential feature is that by default it uses a proprietary file format that compresses files, and splits them across multiple discs if necessary. It is also more convenient to use with smaller capacity media like floppy diskettes.
Backup Plan Wizard - Backup To CD-RW and Backup Made Simple come with a Backup Plan Wizard to help you tell the software which drives, folders and files to back up.
CD-RW Drive Wizard - Backup To CD-RW and Backup Made Simple come with a CD-RW Drive Wizard to help you get started using your CD-RW drive or DVD burner with them. This will give you information on such topics as formatting backup discs, and test your drive to make sure it works with the backup software.
Select Folders And Files To Backup - Backup To CD-RW and Backup Made Simple let you select which folders and files you want to backup, through an easy to understand dialog showing the folders on your hard disk. You browse through the folders, and click buttons to tell the software to backup folders or not. When you decide to backup a folder (or not), that decision also applies to all subfolders of that folder unless you say otherwise for individual folders.
Unless you say otherwise, if a folder is backed up all files in it will be backed up. You can, however, say to backup ONLY particular files, or all files EXCEPT particular files, and combinations of these conditions. You have complete control over what is backed up.
You can backup any data on any drive letter visible in Windows Explorer, not just your own hard disk. If you are using a network you can backup data stored elsewhere on the network, or even data stored on other devices such as CD-ROM drives or floppy diskettes. To back up over a network you will need to map the “shares” on the other computers to drive letters on your computer.
Save Backup Instructions In Backup Plan - Since you have such flexibility in specifying what to backup, naturally you’d like to be able to save all these instructions for when you want to make the same backup again later. The software saves this information in a backup plan, which is stored in a bunch of small files which reside in the folders for which you’ve given instructions. The instructions for a particular folder are always stored in the plan file in that folder.
Adapts Automatically When Folders Are Reorganized Or Renamed - Storing the backup instructions in the folder to which they apply has another benefit – If the folder is renamed or moved, the instructions adapt automatically. This is because the instructions don’t actually give the name of the folder they apply to – they always apply to the folder they are found in. This idea carries even further – if a new folder is created, it automatically inherits any backup instructions specified for its closest parent folder, and if you delete a folder any instructions in it are cleanly removed as well. All this means that your backups continue to save what you want no matter how you reorganize your hard disk.
Uses As Many Backup Discs As Needed - The software will use as many CD-RW, CD-R, the various DVD formats, floppy, Zip or Jaz discs as necessary to hold your backup. When a disc becomes full, it will ask you to remove the old one and insert a new one. If a file will not fit entirely in the remaining space on a disc it will save the entire file on the next disc, unless your backup plan specifies to save such files using the “ special” format described below.
No Proprietary File Format To Restore From - Unless you say otherwise, Backup To CD-RW does not use a proprietary file format to save the backup in. The folder heirarchy which was backed up is reproduced exactly on the backup disc(s), and all the files backed up are in the same folders as they are on your hard disk.
The big advantage to this is you can work with files on the backup directly on the backup disc, instead of having to restore them first. In most cases you can open documents and other files directly from the disc using the same software you would to open them from your hard disk, just using the drive letter for your CD-RW drive or DVD burner. Realistically though, since CD-RW and DVD are much slower to access than a hard disk if you want to do a lot of work with a backed up file you will want to restore it first.
This feature is also available in Backup Made Simple, by turning off the option to compress and split large files.
Optional Special File Format For Large Files - While saving files in their original format is much more convenient than using a proprietary format, for really large amounts of data this may not work so well. For example, you cannot save a file larger than the capacity of the backup disc using the original format. And it may simply take too many discs to make a total system backup, if you don’t use file compression. For this reason, Backup To CD-RW is also able to use a special format which avoids these problems. This format compresses the file contents using the same technology as used by the well known WinZip program, and will split the file across as many backup discs as necessary if it won’t fit on the current disc. You can specify in the backup plan to use this special format for all files above a certain size.
Backup Made Simple uses this proprietary format all the time, unless you turn it off.
Backup In One Program and Restore In the Other - Either program can restore any backup made by the other.
Backup All Selected Files Or Only Recently Modified Files - The software can either backup exactly the files specified in the backup plan, or it can apply an additional restriction to only backup files which have been modified in the recent past. You can tell the software how many days to look back, so you can backup only files modified in the last 10 days, 30 days, 122 days, whatever.
Also, you can elect to backup files whose “Archive” flag has been turned on. The “Archive” flag is turned on automatically by Windows when any program modifies the file. A complementary option to this one is the ability to turn off the “Archive” flag for all files included in the backup which were last modified more than some number of days ago. In other words, leave the “Archive” flag on long enough to allow the file to be included in several backups, but then turn it off.
New Backups Can Erase Old Ones, Or Be Stored Separately - Normally, every time you create a backup to the same destination (CD-RW disc, folder on your hard disk, etc.) it first deletes any old backup it finds there. This is fine for really big backups, where you couldn’t fit more than one at a time anyway, but it’s not so fine for smaller backups such as backups which only include recently modified files.
For this reason, the software has an option to create a separate folder of the specified backup destination each time a backup is made, and name that folder for the date and time the backup was made. That way each backup goes in a separate folder, and it doesn’t have to erase old ones to make room for new ones.
Unattended Backups With Command Line Options - Both programs allow backups to be made without any human participation, once the backup plan has been created. This is accomplished by starting the program with command line options to tell it what backup plan to use, where to save the backup, etc. All backup options are available when the program is used this way. This is very convenient to use from scheduling programs which can launch other programs are predefined times, such as System Agent.
Built In Simple Task Scheduler - While the scheduling programs included with Windows are very full featured, they can be difficult to use. For simple scheduling needs, such as waiting until a specified time that evening or the following morning, the backup software has a simple built in scheduler. You just tell it when to wait until before starting the backup.
Backup Log - The software can write several kinds of backup logs to your hard disk, so you can determine what was backed up, and what disc of a multi disc backup any file is on.
Version restrictions:
- Backup To CD-RW and Backup Made Simple have 30 day trial periods. You can use all features during this period, and after that you can still get in the program but you can’t actually make a backup.
