Duplicate function - recognizing the CD

TEAC CD drive - W216E

 

 

 

In order to free some hard disk space, I have some directories which I want to move to a CD. Within Retrospect, I assume I would/should use "Duplicate" instead of "Backup." (I would like to be able to later insert this CD, view it within Windows Explorer, and manually open or copy any file on it.)

 

 

 

When I inserted a blank CD into the CD drive, I couldn't figure out how to get Retrospect to recognize the CD was there and available for use. I checked Retrospect's Help/Contents and online support knowledgebase. How do I get Retrospect to recognize a blank CD for the "Duplicate" function?

 

 

 

Thanks,

 

Keith

Thanks for answering my two questions, Nate.

 

So, if you have files you want to save to CD then delete from your hard drive, you just make a backup? But that would not be convenient later for viewing directly with Windows Explorer or sharing with others.

 

What application would be convenient for moving files from hard disk to CD (to free space on the hard disk)?

 

Thanks again,

Keith
