    hey guys i need your help again

    ive got a folder thats 1.7gb big and has 3625 folders and 23557 files ...

    i want to put this folder onto 3 blank cds...

    now its impossible for me to do it manually cos by brain is minutely small ..

    so i need your help..

    is there an app that will automate this process without data loss and doesnt break individual files into fragments....

    please let me know


    thanks

    Aquire Nero you can drag and drop and there is a meter at the bottom to show when the disk is full.

    did you try using winRar?...when you add files to a new archive you can choose how big you want each archive(aka .rar file) to be. i use it all the time. then just burn the archive files. one to a cd.

    hope this helps.

    i did the archiving using winrar .it made a 1.7gb folder into 2 archives of 615mb each...thats pretty good.but it took 50 minutes to do it on my p4 and another 45 mins to extract it...thats too much ..could someone please help me out with multisessions in nero 5.5
     
  9. Use WinOnCd 5, it splits files into several cd´s

    Use winrar on its archive only setting, without the file compression it will take under a minute to split the folder into 3.
