I just got a new PC a couple of days ago. I've been trying to use Backup software to transfer some of my unique files from my old PC to the new one. I have tried using the Nero Back It Up which is on both my PCs, as well as a freeware program I downloaded called GenieSoft Backup Manager.
About 3/4 of my attempts however have ended in failure. The problems I have encountered are: The program tries to burn a file on too few CDs (tries to use 2 when it obviously needs 3). The Restore process fails (don't know why, the CD being restored to the new PC just stops and I get an error message saying restore failed).
I have been using Memorex High Speed CD-RWs with 700mb space. I have been making sure the CDs were erased before each of my attempts to Backup/Restore.
I know I can do this with a direct connection, but I don't have the cable to do it. Unless there's absolutely no way to fix this trouble I'm having I'm not going out and spending more money I don't have to get one.
