1.0 out of 5 stars Backup just does not work for me, 2 Jan. 2008
By 
This review is from: Nero 8 (PC) (CD-ROM)
Since there are plenty of maybe not so good applications for writing CD/DVD's and a number of media players, my main use of the nero software has been to backup 'my documents' from my mirrored drives to DVD-RW's.

I have used Nero 6 in windows xp for a number of years. I did once try the Nero 8 trial but it didn't work and I put it down to conflicts with other software. I then changed my hardware and reinstalled XP and tried Nero 8 trial again but it failed in the same way. I then took the decision to upgrade to Vista Ultimate which is incompatible with Nero 6 so I upgraded to Nero 8. On a clean installation with only Nero added, Backitup failed in exactly the same way as it had under XP. I could backup My Documents from my separate Data drive in two halves of under 6GB each but somewhere around 6GB it crashed.

This problem appears to be unique to me as I have seen no references to it on the internet.

Anyway, make sure you try the trial version before buying this.

Disc burning worked correctly but that is not what I use the program for hence the low rating.
