Why backup to DVD?

Financial records. Tax information. Email correspondence. Documents from work or school. Digital photos. It's all on your computer, and you can't afford to lose it if something bad happens. To choose stable and easy-to-use backup software is very important and you can backup the file to different media.

Backup to DVD has become increasingly common due to mature technology and cheap DVD burners, this is why the backup to DVD method is so popular (and with the release of Blu-ray discs, which basically have the same physical dimensions as standard DVDs and CDs, backing up to DVD will become one of the most used backup methods).

Know more about backup DVD

If you plan to do a backup to DVD, please consider our recommendations:

- Do not use the same DVD to store consecutive backup versions. It's better to use different DVD media for each backup version (change the DVD media at each backup run). Use a set of DVDs and rotate them periodically (e.g.: take 7 DVD media, one for each weekday; start with the first DVD again every 7 days). The reason for this is that in case the burn process fails, you still have the previous backup version on a different disc.

- Rewritable DVD media can only be burned a limited number of times. When strange errors happen, first consider whether if the DVD might be overburned (worn out) or not.

- Always test the DVD backed up data after burning.
