In the backup wishlist I wrote
“2. Write a backup as a session to a CD-R (DVD-R/+R), as opposed to file writing to a CD-RW (DVD-RW). This would save the user having to always have a formatted CD-RW (DVD-RW) handy and would lower the total running costs of the app.”
Out of curiousity I decided to see what would happen if I stuck a CD-R in the drive and attempted a backup to it. The backup started and the lights did what lights do and then the job finished. I ejected the disk and reinserted it and up popped a window showing the files I’d selected to do a backup of.
EVERY other CD backup application I know of will only work with CD-RW, other than those that write a proprietary file structure.
This is AMAZING! Given the lower cost of CD-R, as opposed to CD-RW, and the convenience of not having to format or erase disks, these facts make Comodo Backup a far more valuable tool for a far greater range of users!
This fact should be pushed in the marketing of the app!
Having made numerous backups to CD-R and CD-RWs, a single back up by Genie Backup Manager and another single backup to cd by Handy Backup (I’ve given links there it you’d like to see the respective features) I decided that you guys rock forever. Keep on the good job!
