    If it takes 2 or 3 DVD disks to back up a drive, and you want to verify the disks, when you put in the first disk and it checks it, why does it not ask for next desk? If you put in the second and click to check it, it will not verify it, you get an error.

    To verify the disks (that is, to verify that the disks can be read), use IsoBuster or a similar program. To verify the image integrity, copy it to a hard disk and verify from it.

    In fact, the best practice is to create the images on a hard disk. Then they can be copied to optical disks if desired, as an additional level of security. Also, images should always be restored from a hard disk. The operation with optical disks is slow and cumbersome.
