I found a bug reporting form on the site.

 

Basically, I tried to do a verify on a data set. It endlessly checked disk 1 once it hit

Remaining: 195757 files

Completed: 44010 files

 

Those counts stop, but the byte counters continue. The, remaining bytes, hits 0, and rolls over.

 

This was tried several times on a few data sets.

 

The backup media are DVD-RW. There are 3 disks in the set.

 

The last log looks like this:

CDs and DVDs are not very good backup media, but I've already spent $6,000 in a new computer, hardware and software since April. It will be another couple of months before I can afford a FW HD ( only a little better than CDs and DVDs ). I'm still waiting for affordable MO technology capacity to catch up ( cartridge based - no surface contact problems and magnetic or laser on it's own can alter the data ).
