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

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.

winRAR is your best bet bro...yes it takes time no matter how fast your machine is but sak yourself....If you need it doen..then do it.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
