    I have to backup someone elses hardrive, and they specifically requested that i use cdr's and just put the files on the cds, not a backup volume set or anything where you cant see each file on each cd without a special program.
    Is there a program that will let me load a bunch of files and folders that total more than 700mb in the program, and have the software just ask me for the next cd, like a volume set but allowing me to see the files individually on each cd without a specific program, Just like a regular data cd?

    I suggest manual sorting acctually. That way you can see to that directories don't get splitted if they're not supposed to and so on. Some work maybe, but then they'll be in some order at least.

    Probably won't work to well . It might be ok for small programs but filling a cd with just folders is asking for trouble. When you load a some programs they go into a lot of different directories. You saave one but miss the others. Then there is the registry to consider. Ghosting it is the way to go for that size.
    ps just my 2 cents worth. :D

    (may have a 'pro' on the end as well!) supports entire Partitions to CDR and I think DVD/R
