I am in need of a program that does this. On a schedule, burn a set of backup folders to DVD-RW's for offsite storage. I am currently using Nero BackItUp. The problem is it puts the backup data into a proprietary format on the DVD's so I can't double check the information on the DVD's from time to time. Here's our situation:
We have 5 Desktops (Win XP Pro Sp2) networked. I have a nifty little program that runs in the evening daily to backup selected folders from each desktop to one folder on my machine. The folder on my machine is ~15 GB. I then have Nero BackItUp run on Friday's to burn this folder on my machine to a set of DVD's. This works fine, but I can't verify the DVD's contents after they are burned. (i.e. When I browse a newly burned DVD, it shows a set of files that are proprietary format.)
I would prefer freeware, but am willing to donate to someone for shareware. If the program could run from command line that's a plus but not required. Also, I'm sure someone is gonna say something about just get an external HD or two and backup to those and take them off site... At this point this is not an option as buying new external HD's is not in our budget.
Any ideas would be great.
