I just saw a review of COB and decided to give it a try to see if it will help me with my backups. Looks pretty good for most backup jobs but after a couple of hours of dead ends I cannot seem to solve what I thought was an easy task so I am hoping someone here could help or tell me if this tool may not be a match for my task.
My goal is to backup a Photo collection that is 14gb worth of directories in this way:
Simple Copy backup of files so final backup are regular files and directories.
Break up my backup into DVD sized increments of roughly 4.7gb
Is one of the the following:
If I can do this directly to DVD drive that is great but not necessary.
If I can do this to a hard drive as directories that are 4.7gb each that will work.
If I can do this as individual .ISO files that contain the files and directories that are 4.7gb that I can burn later to DVD that will work.
So far I have tried going directly to DVD-R and if failed with error 97. I think it was trying to format the DVD so I put in a DVD+RW and it began to work but does not look like it will split across DVDs but I may try that one again.
I tried going to .ISO but it appears I will end up with a 14gb .ISO with does not help either. The split option was greyed out so I could not select it. I am guessing it is not valid for a Simple Copy job.
Can anyone tell me if I can accomplish this with COB and maybe what I am missing. Any help is appreciated.
