I am trying to plunk my HDD image onto DVD-R's for later remounting using ATI 9. I have: ATI Home 9 build 3567, plenty of DVD-R's, and a pc with XP on the HDD. The task: Image the entire HDD and then save it onto DVD-R's for later recovery. Let me know if I have this wrong or am missing vital information. It has been over a year since I've even thought about ATI or any imaging. I've been going over all the old threads regarding the two step process, etc. I know it's easier all around to have another HDD for image backups but that isn't an option for me. From what I can tell I can use ATI to make a complete image of the HDD and then save it on the same HDD volume ideally divided up into 1492MB .tib's. And then three 1492MB .tib's will fit on one DVD-R. Then (depending upon the HDD size) ATI will produce a certain number of .tib files onto my HDD at the location I've specified. Then I need to use some 3rd party burning software to slowly burn these .tib files exactly as they are (ISO burning?) to the DVD-R's. And I need to keep them in order because ATI won't mount unless the last .tib is mounted first, yeah? So provided I can burn these 1492 .tib's to a number of DVD's then I need to verify the integrity of the burnt DVD-R's .tib's using ATI. Otherwise I'll have plenty of beer mats if a byte is off somewhere. And I need a bootable ATI recovery CD-R with all the ATI program features so that I can eventually remount all the .tib's spread across the numerous DVD's onto the HDD. The Nero 188.8.131.52 I'm using likes to befugger large files by reworking them with Nero BackItUp into non-ATI-usable chunks with extensions like .nc_ in a directory that it burns onto the media. There are advanced burning options in Nero but I'm uncertain which would burn these 1492 .tib files directly onto the DVD-R's without putting them into directories or otherwise ruining the .tib's. Maybe there is some very quick and easy/painless burning freeware/shareware (without malware) that will burn these 1492MB ISO .tib files besides Nero. Thanks in advance for any/all helpful input!
