    You are never going to get good resolution on a standard DVD, to achieve HD (1080x1920) you will need to create a BluRay disc, which then won't play on the bog-standard DVD players you encounter.

    I was going to recommend Sysinternals Diskview which allows you to click on any part of the disk 'area' to see which file occupies the space, but it seems you don't need to any more! BTW, my W10...

    Does that mean you let it analyse all your music in one fell swoop, then clicked 'save all'? If so, then unless 'undo' is still available, you may be out of luck. I have never used it, only read...
