Default Personal data backup to cd-rom question

This question was brought to my attention by a co-worker and I have done some research and found no answers without the purchase of 3rd party software, so far?

1- I would like to backup the following folders to cd-rom, My Documents and email profile.
2- I would like to automate the backup by creating a icon on the desktop and everytime I needed to backup the folders due to changes, I would just double click the icon and it run a script or batch file to complete the process.
3- Also, is it possible for when the data is added to the cd-rom and the full capacity is used, it will pop out the full cd-rom and ask for another?

Can this process be done. Thanks

Hmm by the sounds of it you would be best getting an automated backup program . I dunno which are good or bad maybe someone else can reccomend a good one here
As for the full cd thing i know it is possible to use multi session to add to CD's after thay are burnt but i dunno about your other suggestion

Did you even attempt to use google?


Also, what I do is anything important, or things I need to keep, I will make a copy of and keep in a separate folder, then back that folder up every 2 days or something.
