    Format DvD

    I'm running WXpHe - fully patched. I want to re-format a DVD+RW disk:
    Nero allows me to do this, then when I open the disk with WQindows Explorer all of the old data remains. In viewing the properties of the disk, it is shown as full, however this is certainly not true. Therefore in being read during the last month an error has ocurred to or on the disk.

    Manual dlection of the files does not work either. Apart from throwing it away - and this is not a problem - anyone suggest how I can re-form this disk please?

    Throw it away and stop using RW disks. They are unreliable for backups, as you have discovered. Use DVD-Rs and don't close the session.
