Spanning Disk Hell

Recommended Posts

Guest m00se

I am trying to archive files from a failing drive. I am using your newest version 4.3.8.2568. I have nine (9) 4.7 gig dvd's worth of data to get off this hard drive before it shits the bed. I get to disk 7. When I put the blank Verbatim DVD+R in the drive for disk 8 it spins up, then nothing. The dialogue says it needs a 3.38 gig disk, and it thinks the 3.7 gig disk I put in is a 3.4 gig disk (it shows the same in both size needed and blank size areas of the requester).... then I hit REFRESH, and nothing changes. The disk spins up but nothing after that. Did I just waste 7 freekin disks for nothing?

Meh - please help - I have to DO THIS before my hd FAILS....

Thanks

If you attempt to rescue data from a damaged disc, I'd strongly recommend that you try to create a full disk image using a boot CD like Acronis True Image Home and then save it to a USB disc that is large enough.

In regard to your problem I am a little confused: You say that you put in a 3.7GB disc? You probably meant 4.x? There is no easy way out of the situation, but you could try using the "overburn" option if available.
