Backups Won’t Span Multiple DVDs?

Fred, I’ve tried backing up to DVDs
but the programs seem to stop after backing up to one DVD. In the old DOS days,
the back up programs would continuously backup to 3.5" disk until the backup was
complete. Are there any programs that will continuously backup to DVDs instead
of backing up to hard drives? Thanks,

Building Boot Disks From CAB Files

Hi Fred. I look forward to Sundays and
Wednesdays. You wrote… The biggest showstopper for many users is that PE
Builder— and UBCD4Win— require a normal Windows installation CD. Many PC OEM
"recovery" CDs or hard-disk recovery files won’t work with PE Builder, and
that’s the only installation copy of Windows many users have."
I discovered that while I have no installation disk on my HP XP Pro computer,
all the installation CAB files are on my C: drive and Bart PE Builder worked
just fine. For those who don’t have a disk it might be worth trying it. You
might be surprised. —Robert

Still Waiting For Microsoft’s Mail…

My programs crash pretty often, and
when that happens, a window pops up that asks me to send an error report to MS,
which I do. What happens to these reports? My impression was that MS would
analyze them, and eventually email back the reason these programs crash. Is that
a fantasy? Why should it be a one-way flow of information from me to MS? What do
I get out of these reports? Sincerely, Steve Brown
