There has been a problem , i recently was trying to back up recovery driver on DVD-R . That is not all files but just the system recovery drive . Here is more information .

I have three drives - Local Disk , Recovery Drive (D) , HP tools (F) . Recover Drive has 12.7GB and my DVD+R has only 4.7GB .
And yes i know that is too much for a DVD +R (12.7GB).

Any suggestions what I could do to solve this , remember i just want to have a recover items not everything . So that means only the D drive not Local Disk or HP tools (F).

What usually happens is it uses 3 or more DVD's, it does the first part then tells you to change disc and it then continues and so on. The biggest thing is to label the discs in the right order

Put in one DVD, set up windows backup (to DVD). When the first DVD is full, take it out, and put in the next. Rinse and repeat.

Remember to NAME your DVD's as soon as the come out of the pc. Order is important.
