Don't do it, man. Your chances of getting a coaster are *way* too high for any sort of even vaguely reasonable backup plan. If nothing else, you can't verify your backups until you've finalised the disc, and you don't want to finalise the disc until you've got it mostly full, but you want to verify your backup ASAP so you can redo it if it's stuffed. I can just see the mounting pile of reasons why this is a Bad Idea... Buy yourself a USB HDD and go from there. The pain and suffering is not worth the short-term cost advantage of the CDs. - Matt -- A "critic" is a man who creates nothing and thereby feels qualified to judge the work of creative men. There is logic in this; he is unbiased -- he hates all creative people equally.
