DVD-R disc not full before Retrospect requests new disc

Recommended Posts


I am running Retrospect Backup v MAC5.1 on a PowerMacG3/450(blue) circa 1999. OS9.2.2 The software runs perfectly but it's only filling about 1/3 of the 4.7GB DVD-R disc in my Plextor PX-708UF IDE backup drive before requesting a new disc. The Retrospect message box reads:


"Please select a new disc. It will be named <next disc>. All data will probably fit on one new 1.3GB disc."


Why 1.3GB disc?


Why is Retrospect not utilizing the full capacity of my drive/disc? (Note: Running a Check Script Retrospect acknowledges the full 4.7GB capacity of my discs.) I have installed the latest Plextor firmware upgrades.
