Today, CD writers are very common and CDRs
and CDRWs are cheaper than ever. While most
people use their CD writers to create music CDs
or to copy files, CD-R and CD-RWs can also be
used to store backups in an easy way. A normal
CD can store 650 MB of data. This number can
often be doubled to 1.3 GB using an efficient
compression algorithm. Since most backups are
often smaller than 1.3 GB, this makes CD-Rs or
CD-RWs a perfect solution for storing backups.
In order to use the CD media more
efficiently, you will probably want to compress
your backup before writing it to the CD.
Compression can often reduce the size of a
backup by 50 % or more, doubling the capacity of
your CDs. If you have ever tried to compress a 1
GB file, you probably know that this will take a
lot of time. Since WinBackup compresses files
on-the-fly, backup operations will be performed
considerably faster. The built-in compression
also reduces the need for a large temporary
storage location and makes it much easier to run
large backups to CD-R or CD-RW discs.
When storing backups on CDs, security can easily become a
problem. Since CDs can easily get lost or even stolen, you will
need to protect your backups from unauthorized access by using
some kind of password protection or encryption. Backups often
contains emails, important documents, and other sensitive
information; and, in fact, if you back up your entire hard
drive, your backup could even contain passwords to computers and
websites. WinBackup allows you to password protect and encrypt
your backups with 128- or 256-bit AES encryption, making it
virtually impossible for anyone else to access your files. Since
encryption can be performed automatically on all backups, you do
not need to worry about security every time you save a backup to
Integrated CD Writing
Even though many PC owners have a CD writer installed on
their computer, surprisingly few use it to back up important
data. One reason for this could be that many users feel that
writing backups to CDs is a little too complicated. WinBackup
has integrated CD/DVD writing features that makes it easier than
ever before to write backups directly to CDs or DVDs without
knowing anything about CD writing. Storing your backup on a CD
or CD-RW is as simple as inserting an empty CD-R or CD-RW into
your CD writer and clicking Run Backup. You can even leave a CD-RW
in the CD writer and schedule WinBackup to automatically update
the contents daily. If the CD writer is located on some other
computer on the network, you can schedule WinBackup to backup to
that computer first and then to write the backup to a CD.
WinBackup also makes it easy to backup emails, documents, or
Internet Favorites with built-in shortcuts to important user
