I was backing up some important files to CD's using WinBackup and as I was on my 6th CD an error popped up saying 'Verify failed, unable to read backup files.' so basically I wasted my time and cd's, right?
Does anyone know how to help?

Well I put one into the CD rom and click on the icon in the rom drive and Windows Installer comes up and it opens WinBackup up. When I am in the restore tab it says for me to select a job to backup yet there is NO job to backup, so I assume that there is no data.

If you clicked explore on a ROM drive with a disc in, it would show everything on the disc

It's the same exact thing as before, it's the backup file that I named Kelly 4.47.
