Have you ever faced a situation when your important backup DVD is corrupt? I have, and it can be quite frustrating. Strictly speaking, optical media is not good is backups and archiving. But if I were to buy a 100GB hard-disk every 3 months, my dad would freak out
So it would seem that DVDs are the way to go for the time being. And I found a good piece of software that would help me restore my DVDs if they ever got corrupt. Its called Dvdisaster.
The process of creating the error codes is a bit tedious, but it would help with important data.
