When I want to save a copy of my data (mainly word docs) I simply write them to the cd-rw. However, a few months after doing that I decided to save them again, as some had changed, and more files had been added. So I just copied over the My Docs folder.
I would have thought that it would simply update the earlier files, and maybe it did that, but somehow I ended up with 2 copies of everything. Maybe I wrote them twice or something. There were also mp3 and midi files, with the result that the cd-rw is now FULL !
The following questions come to mind:
1 Can you delete files from the cd-rw? I tried and couldnt, it said it was "read only".
2 Is it possible to re-arrange, drag and drop, etc on the cd-rw i.e. to tidy it up, as it were?
Also a strange thing has just happened with my cd-rw. I load it up, right click, go to properties, and it says
Used 542 kb Free 254 mb
But when I right click the folder on the cd-rw (My music and Docs) it gives:
Size 349 mb, which is more realistic.
I just inserted another cd-rw, which is absolutely full, and right clicking gives a size of only 203mb !!?
Wonder whats going on?
