In your opinion, which is better for backing up files to DVD+R, Nero
BackItUp or Stomp Backup MyPC? Thank you in advance for all
replies.

I am TERRIBLY cruel to my cat. I tease him with a vine tendril
until he either jumps up in the air to bat at it or zooms around
in a circle until he gets too dizzy to stand up. What is cruel about
it is that I don't do it nearly as much as he wants me to.

Stomp has saved my data twice. I can't speak about total recovery
because I always end up reinstalling windows and creating a "fresh"
disk.

But Stomp got all - ALL - my data files back for me even when I had to
use a friend's computer to install Stomp and then read my CDs on her
machine.

Bear in mind that Stomp is the single-user single-machine version of one of
the major multi-thousand-dollar enterprise backup programs. But also bear
in mind that the backup program that comes in the box with Windows is an
earlier version of it.

I prefer Stomp Backup MyPC. Nero BackItUp takes *ages* to compress the files
before it writes them to the DVD. Stomp does it on the fly.
